This does not contradict with what I've claimed:
"you could not build KDE by any released version of CMake"
Also, you also confirmed that for KDE, some changes were made in CMake.
Therefore, the claim that Boost would only have to maintain CMake description,
and don't ever touch, or request changes in CMake itself, is not backed up
by KDE's experience.
