[cdt-dev] Custom content provider for CDT executables

Title: navigatorContent
I want to add custom content to the Project Explorer view for an executable.  I've tried using the org.eclipse.ui.navigator.navigatorContent/navigatorContent extension point.   I can make my content appear on non-executable files, but not executables.  Apparently CDT takes precedence over my extension. 

Looking through the source code it looks like CDT provides for children of a binary file: source files, functions and variables.  See org.eclipse.cdt.internal.core.model.Binary.computeChildren().  But it does not provide the ability for other plug-ins to add arbitrary children.

Is there an existing way to add arbitrary children to a CDT executable that I've missed?  If not, do you have any recommendations on the best way to add such a change?
