which would mean either: when generating the new Xcode project file, merge the
settings with the already existing one (of there are settings which can be
changed by the user and which are not set at all by cmake), or, add some
special cache variables to cmake which can be changed by the user and will be
used by the Xcode generator to write these specific entries in the project
