Sometimes it is nice to be able to close out all the files but the current
project you are working on.  Say you have 10 projects open.  You are working on
a couple of them.  You finish what you are doing, but may need them again real
soon.  You want to leave the trees and everything opened the way you have them.
 You also want to work on another project.  You open a file from it.  You then
want to close out all the other projects editor tabs you have been working on. 
You can do this to close all other windows, but what if you decide to do this
after you opened 4 or 5 documents in this one project?  Currently you can't do
it, but it would be nice to have.  I ran into this earlier today.

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.
