Unless I am misreading something, Roman did not ask if CMake is going away
as the build system of KDE -- and presumably, such question would be better
asked at kde-devel mailing list anyway.

I think I gave an accurate answer regarding Boost.Build and its use for the
Boost C++ Libraries, and any further discussion/comparison of build systems
is probably off-topic on this list.
