Ummm to make sure my last proposal above was understood, what I was
proposing was not to have alternate commands for now, just to have an option
to make the c/c++ filetype commands available for headers.  Currently
headers are hard coded to be unable to access any build or compile
commands.  If headers need a different build command then one of the spare
commands will have to be used and the user must choose the correct command
for header or body.   Since there is some risk in that process, eg choosing
the wrong command may have unintended side effects, the option is off by
default (giving current behavior).  It probably should be a hidden option,
not on the GUI.
