That's one way.  Another one is to have separate frames dedicated to
different projects/activities.  You switch to a frame when you need to
get back to the project/activity specific to that frame.  Each frame
in Emacs "prefers" the buffers used in that frame, so switching
between buffers within a frame is likely to be easy, without mixing
buffers from other frames.
