Well, here's an idea:

As long as you use MXF files, your Avid MediaFiles folder will have a subfolder named "MXF", which has at least one subfolder named "1".

If you have a current project, and are starting a new one, you could simply rename the "1" folder to "PROJECTX.1". Media will be available, and all new media is created in a new folder named "1", which you could easily rename as well.

The downside is that - even though the Avid reads the folder - it won't be able to write to it nor rebuild databases and such. Also, your Avid will keep rendering and writing to folders "1" and "2'.

ALternatively, on Windows, you could use the subst command, which allows you to designate a certain folder and make it appear as a (virtual) drive. I couldn't find anything similar for Mac this quickly, but I suppose there should be either a Terminal command or some shareware utility that would allow you to create virtual drives.

And of course, there are applications like MediaMover, MediaSift, MacMediaSift and MDV, which allow you to filter Avid MediaFiles folders. That way, you can just work on, and separate out files later.
