A quick opengrok (http://opengrok.go-oo.org/) on "vi:set", "ex:set" and
"vim:set" suggest that I'm nearly the only one who ever added them
before now to .cxx files and all of those could be clobbered. There's
one in regexp which isn't mine, but it could be clobbered too. There are
some perl scripts which have modelines which are nothing to do with me
but they're not affected by this script anyway.

As a minor aside, SourceFiles='*.cxx *.cpp' can be extended to .hxx, .h
and .hpp to I guess. Hmm, maybe also .idl.
