2. Template projects

* When a new project is started, give a choice between different template projects. The template would provide the basic empty skeleton of that kind of project, with some helpful comments. This would really lower the threshold for newbies, or just people trying a new kind of project. It would also help establish "best practices" and reduce support needs.

Addition: If the template functionality was implemented as a template directory, where each subdir was a project dir containing a template project, which, upon selection, is copied as the new project, you could also have the additional benefit of creating your own templates. This would allow you to start projects with your own "foundation" already in place.
