Well, when you include modules like lfs (Lua File System), lua SVN,
luasocket, etc., I'd wager that you could indeed do more with Lua than
you could with CMake (or at lest in a more unified fashion without
having to resort to shell scripts and such).  I may be wrong though.
Does CMake allow for the programmatic searching of files in directory
trees or allow updating of files from a repository?
