This is a major bugbear for me in Delphi,  I copy a project, open it up, 
start rebranding it (e.g. Times -> Sunday Times), run it, and hey presto, 
Original ver. runs.  I then have to go round, making sure that the files 
are duplicated, and then work out which are added relative and need saving, 
and which are added non-relative to switch over.

I think that if possible, project files should be kept completely free of 
non-relative paths.
