Hi Peter,

as you have seen, changing the logic is not easy, for a number of
reasons. I would like to have parenthesis, but since the parsing is
done by string processing, any parenthesis in one of the search
strings would be difficult to handle.

Some work-arounds:

1. Have you thought about using a sparse tree?  Or is you stuff in
  different files?

All the things I'm interested in for this are in one file, so that would work. It would need a regexp that duplicated some of the logic to match
todos and tags, I guess.

No, there are many ways to build a sparse tree, and one is a tags query. This is
on `C-c / T' (or, if you have an old version, maybe on `C-c \'.

2. You could use categories to mark the entries.  Basically make each
  project its own category.

Yes, that's a definite possibility.

3. Have you tried follow mode in the agenda?  Then you will always
  see, in another window, the embedding of the entry you are
  looking at.

Yes, or just hitting Space. This works nicely, thanks!

Another thing I've done is to add a TODO type called PROJECT. That also makes it easy to put projects at different levels in the tree, which is good because I have a huge file of things to do that I had been keeping
in outline-mode, and this is a lot easier than moving all the
project-type subtrees to level 2.

Yes, I have the same thing in my setup.
