[Qgis-developer] Adding a project as a reference

 Hi Denis,

 We have the embedded layers and groups. You can select another QGIS 
 project and pick the groups and layers you want. It is a live link. I 
 use this feature to integrate the cadastral data in pretty much any of 
 my other projects.

 It does not allow to change any settings on the layers (e.g. different 
 min/max scales) - but other than that it works great.

 Did you have a look at this feature?
