[GNC-dev] gnucash.xcodeproj obsolete ?

Probably mostly a question directed at Mike, but I'm sending it to the list so 
others can follow...

The gnucash repository contains a gnucash.xcodeproj directory that was set up 
by Mike Alexander in 2014 as a helper to run unit tests via xcode. It has 
gotten regular updates until somewhere in 2017.

Since then the code paths have been changing a lot and in its current state 
this project folder is unusable.

On the other hand, meanwhile the gnucash project has switched to the cmake 
toolchain which natively can generate xcode project files. Having no access 
any more to an Apple PC, I can't test how well that works but I have no reason 
to assume it wouldn't.

With this capability baked into cmake do we still want to keep the old xcode 
project in our repo ? Can it do something we wouldn't be able to do with the 
cmake generated xcode project (possibly after some tweaking of our current 
cmake scripts) ?
