[TriEmbed] dumb question about mbed and external libraries

It's been my experience that the library import insists on you 
specifying a project and the library appears under that in the left side 
GUI tree. There's got to be a trivial way to make it available to other 
projects, but I haven't looked for that.
Unless I'm mistaken the rev 8 FreeRTOS is the most recent "stable" 
version. I wonder if there is a config.h file with your newer version 
that has to get copies or adapted? There is also a "FreeRTOSConfig.h", 
but that seems to be a different animal.
