[Qgis-developer] Adding a project as a reference

Hi all,

I don't know if this idea has been raised or not, a quick google search 
did not lead to anything.

I wonder if it would be feasible to introduce the option of adding a 
project as a reference, as you can do in autocad.
Basically, this would be a new type of layer, where you could specify 
the scale visibility for example. Layers do not need to be editable and 
they shouldn't.

The advantage is that you can insert a "base" project into many children 
project. The base layers will be regrouped into one.

Anybody ever thought about this?
Do you have any idea of the amount of work?

Thanks a lot
