it's not not ideal, but a total no-go. apart from theoretical exercises
like a shared read-only source tree, there are also cases like multiple
shadow builds of one source tree.

moc needs an option to add a search path for these files. in fact, maybe
just the include path could be used. isn't this the case already?
