I was one person who requested this feature, but it may not be working right? It shouldn't close _all_ the files, just the files of the project that is being closed. If I multiple projects loaded (I usually do) I don't want all my files closed anytime I close one of the projects.

>From the .pro being closed, SOURCES,HEADERS,RESOURCES,DISTFILES should be closed.

If you need to edit the files of a project after the project is closed, why close the project?
