XCode vs Projucer: Set folder for intermediate build files

Xcode places intermediate build files in ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData. There is an option in the project settings to change that directory but if I set that, it will be overwritten by the projucer whenever the project is re-saved. Is there a way to tell the projucer to set this option when re-saving? I would like to have the intermediate files sit in a subfolder of our project so that we can archive and browse them easily.

The stackoverflow.com page you linked to shows how to change the global Xcode settings. These settings are not tied to a project. So I don’t understand how Projucer can interfere with them.
