BTW, can cmake "out of the box" deal with:
Last time i checked none of these were supported.
Yes, qmake support is "hackish", but that is not a good reason to
justify the near-zero support of cmake.
And let me diverge a little bit, whatever the build system chosen by
Qt *developers*, Qt *users* should still be free to choose their own
build system. I'm including both open source users and paid customers.
That is: however *you* (qt developers) decide to use as your build
system shouldn't impact what *I* (as a Qt user) decide to use as my
own build system.
For example, you'll have to support qmake for years to come... You
like it or not.
