It would have been an innovation for me, had I tried to produce such a
design. My CMake knowledge only goes so far. When library A depends on B
depends on C, and the end user links to A::static, B::shared, and C::header,
I don't know how to write the CMakeLists of A, B, and C so that to make this
work, and my - admittedly limited - understanding is that how to make this
work is not yet common CMake knowledge.
