Qtcreator/qmake pro reference files

  • Is it possible to add "reference" files to a pro file? if not, would it be beneficial to have this feature?

    what I mean:
    I have an api called foo. Foo has all the required header and library files, but the documentation is a pdf file and there is a sample.cpp file. "it would be nice"(there is the phrase!) if I could add these files to my project as references, so I could review these as I develop my project using foo. For example I could add the following to my pro file and have these files show up in my project explorer.


    Of course these would be left out of the build process. Any file that creator couldn't view could be passed to the system to launch associated program.

    I think what I want could be achieved through sessions, but I have never warmed up to any session management in any system/application. Not to get off topic, but if I hear some praises of sessions within creator I will try again.
