I guess really my concern is that folks don't read the docs ;-)

So they'll see the CMake files and just go ahead and use them without
realising that something experimental made it into the release. Has the
CMake code merged to release been rigorously tested - or do we at least have
a means to test it prior to release - for example to test the library build
