I'm using probably the simplest method: `C-x b' offers "future history"
(the sequence of suggestions when you hit `M-n' in the minibuffer) and
it's isearch-able!  So `C-x b' followed by `C-s' and a few letters from
the name of the buffer (any part of it).  The order in which the future
history is organized is the same as in *Buffer List* - recent come

Other than that, if I completely forget the names, I switch to a dired
(I open each project in a dired buffer with -R ls option, so it shows
all files).  `(setq dired-isearch-filenames t)' helps to isearch there
when I see the needed file.
