I don't feel that the RFC is very meaningfully complete.  "Implications: TBD"?

My feeling is that there is no harm for this work to proceed in a branch if
that is what is desired (or even potentially in the main tree, but without
disrupting the existing build system), but that before we declare it the
official build system (presumably only on Unix) we will need an explanation
of the issues and implications.

So I would suggest the experiment proceed, and the RFC be updated at some
point as part of a process to make the CMake system the official unix
build system later when we know the issues.  In the meantime folks could
play with it.


Doh!  I just realized this is all about MapGuide, not FDO.

Umm, well, I think my opinion is sort of reasonable.  But clearly I
don't have the same degree of input.
