	Having N projects means running N buildmasters, means allocating
and keeping track of (!!) N TCP ports.
	Then, on the buildslaves, you have to start N slaves * M chroots
(in my configuration), again keeping track of all the different ports.
	So I do, indeed, use fileIsImportant() to switch among many
different projects.
