Not sure if this should be a feature or patch?

I setup redmine to be used as a service database for customer issue tracking. I would like to be able to use a project name for multiple instances. This would allow me to setup a customer, then have a subproject for each piece of equipment they have. I could then use the serial number of that product as the unique identifier.

- product1
- product2
- product1
- product2

Currently i can only use a project name once, so i have to do something like this

- product1_c1
- product2_c1
- product1_c2
- product2_c2

It's just a bit of a pain, and does not look as clean as i would like while listing the projects.

If anyone has any suggestions on an alternate way to do this that would be great!

Thanks for any help.

Closing as duplicate of #630. The short version: one could create wiki links to a specific page in a project with the project name instead of identifier, which requires unique names, but we will probably remove this option from the wiki links and make project names non-unique.
