This goes without saying.  I will note that because cmake so obviously
fills an otherwise unmet need, it typically faces little resistance from
developers who have to maintain platforms on multiple cross-platforms.
As far as end users are concerned, there is the requirement to install
cmake on their machine.  However, the process of configuring and
building a package is straightforward (and this may be, depending on the
package, much easier than the alternatives).
