But do you consider that line to be wrong ?

I think our 9 open cmake issues basically prove me right. And its not like
these nine issues are a new problem that just appeared. Our cmake issues often
take a long time to get fixed in our project.

The cmake build works perfectly for a whole bunch of users and that's fine and
good, but there's no doubt in my mind that if you run into problems with it
you're up for a rougher ride than with some of the other build options we
have. Plus the fact that the cmake build is far from as feature-complete as
the configure build is.
