Suggestion: Relative paths in projects, and related ideas

It would be very convenient if projects could use some kind of relative path scheme for their files.

One benefit would be that a project could easily be reconfigured if it were necessary to relocate the files.

It would be even better, though a lot more work, if #include path processing could support the same scheme.

Together, these would also allow an entire project to be wrapped up in a zip or similar archive. The ability to create such from within 010 Editor would be especially nice.

When creating a project in 010 Editor with ‘Project > New Project’, there is an option ‘Store Paths Related to Project File’. Make sure that is turned on when creating the project. #includes should support relative paths too and you should be able to use ‘…’ in include paths as well. Cheers!
