It could be a problem if you have packages that require separate
output directories and/or if the directory is shared with another
project with different set of packages and/or settings.

The IDE assumes that packages are shared by projects and thus are
separated from the project.
It's on my todo list to give only one warning in that case.

I added an example showing how to use the macros $(ProjPath) and
($PkgName) to compile packages into separate directories.
