Irrelevance of any intermediate product is beyond question for me; one may argue that hand-crafted parser (like in KDevelop) is better, but use of CMakeLib seems to be more reliable (Qt Creator will see actual project model of CMake instead of "guessed" one), and will provide additional capabilities like changing of project configuration from GUI without use of external tools.
