Emacs does that, and it has problems in practice, because the order of
include files is always wrong somewhere.  Almost everyone else does it
the other way (partly because of Emacs's lessons: it was there first,
and did it wrong, so we all learned from it.....).

If memory serves, the Emacs hackers were slowly trying to change to
the usual way of doing things.  Don't recall if they finished.
