[QBS] List of auxiliary source files in Qt Creator project tree

I was thinking a bit about Qt Creator's presentation of the project tree.

Currently (as far as I am aware), this depends only on files listed in a project's `files` property.
However there is at least one other property that would be worth listing in the project's source
tree (cpp.infoPlistFile) and it's certainly possible we may have other properties like this in the future.
I feel that it's rather unintuitive to have to list this file in the sources as well in order to get it to show up.

That also leads me to a further question of how we might be able to control this more generally.
Perhaps we could have a PropertyOptions bool property that would cause a property's file(s)
to be listed in an IDE's project tree if its type is path or pathList?
