That's correct.

Just add them to the add_executable() call in CMakeLists.txt, e.g.
something like add_executable(test main.cpp foo.cpp something.cpp)

We had this in the past, but had to remove the component which did it
because it was too complicated. Right now, you have to add your source
files by hand to the CMakeLists.txt file. Re-introducing the assistant
doing that automatically would certainly be a nice feature.
