It isn't in my particular use-case, but you can also default to a more
general query if project id is not specified, e.g.:

SELECT id FROM patchwork_patch WHERE msgid=? ORDER BY project LIMIT 1

This will select the project with the lowest ID, which usually
corresponds to the earliest defined project.
