The benefit cmake brings to the table, from my pov, is that it allows to
get rid of somewhat a parallel buildsystem (msvc / windows, which
sources most of its information from the makefiles). If we continue to
have two, especially if they're entirely separate, I see little benefit
in this whole endeavor.
