I remember that. Was there an import mode NOT based on the compile_commands.json file? I still use *that* import mode because it's so much faster, but still don't have automatic cmake file modification :)

Not that I'd want it for *adding* new files; I've seen too many projects that organise their CMake files in, ahem, original fashion. Removing entries when you delete a file is possibly more convenient and easier to implement but even there you can probably not guarantee that you'll always find the entry to remove.
