As far as I understand currently, the only remaining problem is that files 
located outside the project directory won't appear in the tree view tab 
(since in the tree view you can't navigate "above" the project directory).  
With the current patch all files inside the project directory appear in the 
file tree tab, also for the sub projects if they use files above their 
directory but still inside the project directory:

src/CMakeLists.txt      <-include "hello.cpp", "lib/foo.c" and 
src/sub/CMakeLists.txt  <- includes "../lib/foo.c" and "main.c"

The only file that won't appear in the file tree tab is "important.cpp", but 
I'd say that's acceptable
