I used MapServer as one example.  I have other project examples as well. 
  For most of the projects that use cmake in the MS4W stack I maintain 
makefiles - these projects switched to cmake but did not care to test on 
Windows.  So, I live on Windows and must maintain makefiles.  See what I 
am saying? :)

This is very common.  I speak from experience.  I agree, on paper this 
seems like an excellent idea :)
