  Description     : next generation Python CMake adaptor and Python API for 

Scikit-build-core is a ground-up rewrite of the classic Scikit-build,
a bridge between Python package build systems and CMake, the most
popular compiled language build system. The key features of
scikit-build classic (which is setuptools based) are also present

-    Great support for or by most OSs, compilers, IDEs, and libraries
-    Support for C++ features and other languages like Fortran
-    Support for multithreaded builds
-    Simple CMakeFiles.txt instead of up to thousands of lines of fragile 
setuptools/distutils code
-    Cross-compile support for Apple Silicon and Windows ARM

Scikit-build-core is required by the future version of Basix.

The Debian Pythom Team is a natural home for the package.
