Personal preference:  use the "Documents" pane from Kate.  it does
show modified files, and it's far easier to see how open files are a
subset of the filesystem.  (it also looks better)

how about a simple CLI tool that outputs the list of project files
(with optional filters), it could be used from Makefiles and (most?)
other scripts.

something like:

#> kdev_proj_files $projectdir  *.cpp

#> kdev_proj_files $projectdir *.h
