no need to defend CMake. If you like it, by all means, keep using it.
I have described at length what I think is wrong with CMake, and I know
lots of people who agree with me (even if they don't think that Faber is
the solution to those problems).
I don't intend to convince CMake lovers to switch away from their tool
of choice, but I do offer something for those who need a portable build
system but aren't satisfied with either CMake or b2.
