Interesting. At the moment I would probably say that we want global 
search by default. This would probably imply that wiki links that are 
input which are duplicated in different projects would also not be 
automatically scoped so we would need to show the choices or a search 
page instead of going directly to them.

For instance a search for "#1" would now match across multiple products. 
There is a question over how frustrating that would be for those used to 
Trac but we should probably encourage users to use "BH-1" (or whatever 
syntax we agreed to) instead.

I'm not sure if I would add a setting to change this behaviour until 
feedback or experience suggested it is required.
