We used to use Team Coherence (and old VCS that is dying a slow death) that
actually had a feature to help developers with exactly that. You could
setup file groups and and it had some known groups pre-setup for you. So in
TC you only saw the .pas files, but checking out a .pas, also checked out
the associated .dfm file (if it had one). It had similar pre-setup groups
for Delphi's project or package files too.

So I guess some other developers also made such mistakes for TC to have
such a feature. ;-) It was pretty handy though.
