Hey, you asked for "a simple file list", not me. ;)

- so gbuild has only a very, very weak concept of a "module"
- our git has no concept of a "module"
- this is both a Good Thing(tm) that we should keep

There only is a _convention_ that the result of:

 git ls-tree -r --name-only HEAD <module> | grep -E '.h(|xx)$'
 git ls-tree -r --name-only HEAD include/<module>

belongs to <module> in one specific checkout of master. This is a _convention_,
not something that is or ever should be enforced in the build system. Also it
is not something that should be statically generated as adding a file to git is
all it takes to make that file part of the module and thus such a list is
easily outdated[1].
