You can do what most VSCode/Atom project managers seem to, add package.json
or somesuch:

   "pascal-lsp" : {
     "projectfile" : "yourproject.pas",
     "searchpath" : ["a","b"]

And use that as a starting point. As a fallback you can scan for lpi/lpr
(would be helpful for lazarus users)

Most plugins I saw till now use a kind of helper file in the project dir.
