Fair enough, but then the question is whether that's intended or a simple 
accident of how it was implementation.

BTW, is the functionality now working for non-crossing builds? I've been 
trying to use the CMake Ninja multi-config setup, but it's very painful due to 
lots of implementations issues. I'll have to go back to regular single-config 
and I don't want to use the local moc.
