   I do not think I directly saw support for such 'second pass'
generated target detection and am not really sure how that would work.
What folder should it scan for 'all .cpp files'? And should it assume
that all files found there are the ones generated by your converter?

   Why can you not simply state the names of files generated by your

   I guess you could be trying to automate your build using a tool that
takes a folder as a parameter and generates an unspecified number of
files there with unspecified names and then have the build system
automatically try to use those files as sources 'as best as possible'...
YMMV but seems a bit far-fetched to me...
