Hi Robert,

I use categories for this.  I have multiple org files (normally one per
project) but some files (like todo.org) are catch-all org files which
have multiple categories.

I set the category for a subtree using a property.

All of my project tasks are level 2 tasks so they have a level 1 parent
task for organizing things.  Such as

,----[ proj1.org ]
| * Support
|     :ARCHIVE: %s_archive::* Support
|   :END:
| ** TODO First Project
| ** TODO Second Project

so all tasks in this project show up in the agenda in the 'PROJ1'
category.  You're free to set different categories for any subtree and I
find it very flexible.

This works great for me.
