Replace, Deplicate, Destroy

The following message bounced because Pedro used a slightly different

appended my response after it.

Replace and duplicate should be removed.  (If you don't I will, unless of
course a group starts lobbying to keep them.)

As for projects, I'm not sure.  I remember dealing with a program that
did that and found it extremely annoying when converting from a Makefile
because I kept having to go to add.  I will admit though when I have
used projects under xwpe I did expect it to go away.  (If we could
select multiple files using shift/ctrl I definately agree with it.)
