I didn't see a 'general IDE' section - please tell me where to post if this is the wrong place.

I often find myself in the middle of working on a task, with 30 files open, and some support issue comes up.

Dealing with the support issue requires me to do some work on some completely separate project.

While doing that I'm not interested in looking at the files I had open for the interrupted task. Mixing in 5 new files with the 30 is just chaos.

So my question is - can Eclipse handle 'independent sets of open files' and switch between them?
If not, is there a simple alternative way to deal with this situation - short of opening a second copy of eclipse, or some other IDE :-)

I think this was one of the Mylyn Task-Focused features.
