This would require backtraces, I believe, on every property so you can trace 
all the properties back to where they’re defined. I need this too for Visual 
Studio to support adding files as well.

The problem right now is that backtraces are memory intensive. See this issue 
for a discussion about it:

Subject: [cmake-developers] Cmake-server question

I would like to ask about some important feature:
Is there any possibility to provide form Cmake Server side location of command 
that generate the target? The Use Case is as follow:
In IDE you want  to, after Class creation, automatically add CPP file into 
proper add_executable or extend some variable passed to  add_executable or any 
other case that lead to target creation.

This mean that IDE would have to know place in CmakeLists.txt which command 
should extend with new path.
