Dave Cole and I just talked about this.  We think this will be a subtle
behavioral distinction that could lead to surprising behaviors.  It may
also be tricky to implement because there are several ways that modules
can be included (enable_language, find_package, include, etc.).

Since this approach only affects CMake files that are distributed with
CMake we can simply edit them.  I think your AddCMAKE_CURRENT_LIST_DIR
topic looks good.
