The following is on-topic specifically for the above, I feel that
someone should mention it, so briefly: One individual that, IMHO,
has not been properly utilizing shared resources like mailing
lists on the CMake and Lua lists has been banned from the CMake
mailing list. This is just FYI in order to not unfairly taint
CMake in the above exchange, so let us refrain from further, more
specific, opinions.

Agree. Unless there is a real need for certain features, I'd
prefer ubiquitous tools, even if they are considered a little creaky.
