To be clear, this is a vote to maintain status quo, as the guideline do
cmake files to be where bjam files are(like in the build/ directory). What
are proposing is in addition to this, allow a cmake file to exists in the
level of a library's repo.

There is already library's that do this(such as hana and compute), so there
hasn't been a technical problem with the tooling. However, we would like the
wording in the guidelines to state in a more explicit manner that this is
acceptable in order to avoid possible future problems.
