Probably fine, but this may annoy CentOS 7 or Ubuntu 18.04 users.

As this is a fundamental development component, should the minimum
supported CMake be guided by PSC policy? An RFC would only need to say
"released within X years" or perhaps "oldest supported version by
popular OS Z", This way the policy may guide if/when to increment the
minimum version of the component. See related
