How can I change a projects main file?

Currently I can't find a way to change the main file of a project to another one. I can delete the content of the original main file and rename it, but just change it would be nice.
Is this already possible? Maybe the FAQ should be extended.

    A better way to change the main file is definitely planned. Until then, a simple workaround if you do want to have a project with multiple standalone files (rather than splitting them into different projects and sharing files between the two projects with linked files) is to just have the main file \input one of the other files.
