Yes I think that's it even if I'm not very familiar with Eclipse.
I have used komodo-edit and IMHO I think there are some very good
ideas in their project management and browsing facilities.
Have a look here to see  the different concepts they use:

Well I think PIDA can do a lot better ...
For me project managment is about:
* building/executing/refactoring facilities like tools, macro, ...
* and/also files management facilities (VC, directory management,
files import with extensions, project export...)

This idea is excellent.
I'm also with you for fast project switcher.
I may be wrong here but how do you keep the list of files currently
used in the project ?
When switching from one project to another one the idea is to have all
the files belonging to the current project available.
This already possible in PIDA ?

I agree with you. Some times before I made a ticket for this:

Indeed but IMHO it's much more easier to select a file from list of
FilesOfCurrentProject rather than finding this file in the filemanager
if this file is in a obscure path.

just my 2 cents
