I have some legacy projects which I intend to update to modern CMake. The 
documentation is good but do not really cover "best practices". So I have some 
questions which I hope some of you could help to answer:

1. Which version if CMake should I target? I.e. Which version should I require 
in my cmake_minimum_required() statement?

2. What are some best practices when choosing a namespace for my library 
export? For example, lets say that I have a library which handles interfacing 
with a piece of fictional hardware, lets call this hardware "Anvil". My library 
and project is then aptly named "Anvil". But what to name the namespace?

3. Some of my legacy projects have all source in the same directory, i.e. both 
source and header files are in the same directory. Others have both private and 
public headers in the same directory. How do I handle this with 
target_include_directories()? Preferably I would like to avoid reorganizing the 
file structure.
