I think that would involve keeping track of what compilation units
have been processed and then skip the ones from the framework if they
have a counter part in the project files. I'm not sure if Falcon would
like that.

I'm "away from computer" this week, so above is just a barely educated
guess. You mileage may vary ;-)
