Looking at that test.. I can't actually tell that it does what I want.
As Steven mentions, look at the example I posted.

I guess I can try that dev version to see what the feature does.

No. I mean that I can:

        [import some/path/*.hpp]

And have all those source files imported/included/injected into the
quickbook stream.

I've already jumped, because I rather have something now since I hate
being blocked. Especially when I have the time for this right now. And I
don't want for this code to languish any longer. As it's already more
than five years old :-( But they aren't big changes.. And I'll keep them
to myself until I find out what you are planning.
