In some programs, foo.c and foo.h are generally closely related.  But
that is not always true.  For instance, the C code of GNU Emacs does
not generally pair up header files with source files.

Depending on details, a feature that assumes ,c and .h files a paired
might be convenient with the programs which do that, and harmless with
other programs.  If it doesn't get in the way for the other programs,
then the feature does good and no harm.

But if it tends to be a nuisance when editing the programs that don't
pair the .h and .c files, that starts to be a bad thing.
