Reorganizing the "list of open files" in the Window menu

In the Window menu on the right first we have a bunch of "go to" items and then the list of open files.
When you have a lot of files open, especially on my 10" screen, this
means I need to scroll down and even worse, sometime it opens at the bottom of the list and then I don't see the "go to" items.

I thought we could move the list of window one item deeper, so the
last item in the Window menu will be "Go to open file..." and then a submenu will open with the list of file.

Then I had another brain-dead idea. What if we had several sub menues, one for each project currently open. So if you have files open both in


and in


Then you will have two submenus in the Window menu:

Go To Main Window

padre/Padre ...
Games-Lacuna-Client/ ...

and in the submenu will be the files.

Maybe this should be switching back and force between the current mode and the more space saving mode
when the number of files grows above a (configurable) threshold.
