There are almost 300 headers under include/llvm. I can put them all on
*each* project, plus local headers. This seems a lot of baggage.

I've checked that Intellisense can jump to an unlisted header file when
you ask for a declaration on a cpp file. So, what's the benefit of
having the header files explicitly listed in the solution? If it is for
text searching, maybe putting them on just one project (Hello.lib, for
instance) would be enough?

(I use the MSVC++ IDE on rare occassions for debugging, and never for
building nor text edition, so I'm not aware of the needs and
expectations you have)
