Meson seems to have some exporter for Xcode according to
https://mesonbuild.com/IDE-integration.html ... maybe you can harness
that feature somehow?

Yes, I think we generate code in a couple of places, e.g. the code in
target/s390x/ uses a "gen-features" helper to generate some code. So
implementing a separate Xcode project that does not use the main build
files does not sound very appealing.
