Generally, I like this idea because it solves many problems with
maintenance two parallel building configurations:
autotools and Visual C++ solutions.

cmake is sort of a metabuilder, because it works on top of autotools or
Visual C++ 2005 solutions.

Here is an interesting article explaining why KDE project switched to
cmake, also Quantum GIS has switched to cmake recently:
