Double click to open project objects

The behaviour of the project panel is different to other panels, and quite frustratingly so. One mouse click opens up the scene, external event or external layout. In the objects panel, one click selects it but doesn’t open it up. Double click opens up the object details popup. The behaviours between the two panels are not consistent.

Can the project panel behaviour be modified so a double click is required to open a scene, external layout or external event sheet?
