That is pretty much what we do.  We have a script build step that is run 
before each target.  If it finds stuff out of date, it removes the files 
that are out of date.  Then Xcode does the build.   Anyway, most of this 
is hidden from the user anyway.  This is off topic, so maybe if people 
have specific complaints about the Xcode files CMake creates, they can 
send them to me.
