Like others, I think these are too similar, possibly causing confusion
among users.

Another possibility could be Project/Multiproject - in fact, I still
have my original sources of gproject with support of multiple projects
under a github repository with this name (and this plugin is in my
opinion a superset of geanyprj and could be used as a substitute of
geanyprj if there's such interest).
