Maybe the user can use Make Object to compile header files, or (if
implemented) an extra filetype command, not the C compile
command, which should be for source files by default.

I don't think we should add C/C++ header filetypes just to avoid
implementing extra filetype command support. This would apply for other
filetypes too.
