I would like to have more than one project open at once, with the ability to copy/paste clips from one project to another.

you can do this now; put both projects in Library; put both projects on timeline; jump back and forth as desired

I've seen this suggestion a few times. To me it seems like a "workaround". I'd actually like to continue to treat my projects as separate, but be able to copy and paste assets between the two.

That "pollutes" the project with the project that you are copying from, and it increases the chance of making an error.  It's far cleaner to have two projects in separate windows and just C&P the desired elements.  THANKS!

the validity of the "idea" notwithstanding, there are several "workarounds" that enable you to do this now

perhaps this tutorial might be helpful ...

Great Ideas.

I personally like the First method and Last method you showed. 
These methods will help me during different projects.

Thanks for the Ideas  kayakman.
