If the langage internal data representations are similar enough, so that
manual tweaking for corner cases isn't necessary, automatic load-time
translation, e.g. using a lpeg grammar for the cmake language (that at

Immortality, n.  A toy which people cry for, And on their knees apply for,
      Dispute, contend and lie for, And if allowed Would be right proud
      Eternally to die for.
