      I agree - generalizing the project module will make it more 
and applicable, encouraging adoption and development, while
providing benefits to managing projects in and around Drupal.org, too -
for example, documentation!

     Every sufficiently large website project needs some kind of 
management system, at least during the initial development. I've tried
to use Drupal's project module for this, but it wasn't suitable,  mostly
for reasons already discussed.

     It would be an added attraction to people considering Drupal
as a platform for their sites if they had built-in functionality for
implementing project management.
