Indeed. At least the install part is done automatically in kdepimlibs/includes 
already, with the downside that it only picks up new headers after a CMake 
re-run, but still much nicer than the explicit list IMHO. It also has a test 
that makes sure all headers compile with strict flags (QT_NO_CAST_FROM_ASCII, 
etc), might be interesting for kdelibs as well.
