I expect to have to do define that, I just want to do it in an
automatic-ish way.

For example, most of my "projects" (read: applications I work on) I
keep inside of /a/PROJECT-NAME/src/, so it would be nice to set
default-directory to /a/foo/src/ when I open /a/foo/src/bar/bash/woo/
hello/file, so I can simply run 'ack' or 'find-grep' or 'find-file' or
whatever without having to type out a full path every time.
