I am writing a combo procedure that describes how to add and remove a user
from a project. Even though I am notoriously flexible about grammar, I still
cannot bring myself to title the procedure "Add or remove a user to a
project" or Add or remove a user from a project." This appears to be a bug
in the English language :-)

What would you call this combo procedure? Does anybody have an elegant way
to resolve the preposition problem? (To vs. From)
