It is potentially a valid use case to have different "tool chains"
(resp. makefile generators) that use ninja as build tool.
In that case it would be good if we were reusing the ninja support and
not hacking it into the cmake plugin.
But as long as there isn't any other plugin that needs to use ninja the
"reusing effort" can be delayed IMO.
