The problem is that a "proper scan" does not necessarily mean "respect
the logic".

If you have a project that conditionally use fileA.cpp if condition A
is fulfilled, and fileB.cpp if condition B is fulfilled you will m
usually still consider both fileA.cpp and fileB.cpp to be part of 
"your project", even if conditions A and B are mutually exclusive.

The situtation is similar to translations, or for certain types
of search-and-replace.  You want both fileA.cpp and fileB.cpp be
scanned for translations, and search-and-replace work on both files.
