CMake script is portable.  Runs everywhere CMake does.  Nothing
stopping anyone from shelling out to a CMake script, and I've proven
you can write an entire Autoconf --> CMake translator in CMake script.
 I'm not seeing the "big advantage" of the real proven language.  I do
see some aesthetic advantages.
