If people care about this, then they can just be doing a build
with srcdir != builddir config. If people are using srcdir == builddir
then they likely *want* all the generated files in their srcdir.
IMHO it would be valid for us to consider if we could just mandate
srcdir != builddir, but if people object to such a proposal, then I
don't think we should arbitrarily move all generated source files
in this way, as that's effectively the same thing forced onto devs.
