[Bret Williams] "There's no chance of accidentally capturing project A into project B's capture scratch folder just because both projects are open."

Actually that's not true. Aside from the fact that you can't "capture" at all unless you are using FW-based cameras or decks, it is possible to import media into the wrong event. If you have a Coke and a Pepsi Event - both visible - it is indeed possible to import Coke media into the Pepsi Event and the other way around. In fact, I contend it is MUCH easier to do in X than it is in 7, IF you set up your drive correctly in 7 in the first place.

Part of what Apple TRIED to do with the design of X was eliminate the editor having to understand the media location structure. They apparently had to field a lot of user problem support calls with 7 because of that issue.
