Isn't cmake backwards compatible?  If we're using a fairly recent 
version why would it be a problem?  In fact it would simplify the system 
Shooting off the cuff here - I'm not familiar withthe kdev cmakelib work 
and happy to hear more about it.

I think what Konstantin is targeting can be summed up like this - parse 
cmake files as fast as possible and emit make or ninja files.
