Can Netbeans bookmark a group of files?

Our intranet is setup as a single application due to common headers and so on, and it's rather cumbersome to navigate through the source code. Now, let's say I'm working on an enhancement that includes a couple of servlets, a few pages, several classes and a couple of css and javascript files. Is there a way to "bookmark" this collection of files so that I can later open all of them at once?

This is NetBeans 7.0.1. I've looked through the help files and the available plugins and haven't found anything that provides this sort of function. It sure would be helpful to be able to create "sub-projects" or whatever you want to call them, so I could quickly open a group of related files all at once.

In Eclipse you can do this by setting up a task in Mylyn. I don't know if there is a task tracking view in NetBeans...
