It looks like that might be the case although I still need to test cmake on the 
AppleWin port to confirm that’s it’s okay.

Assuming that we do make use of cmake I’m still not quite sure yet about the 
“soon”.
We have one issue with the pthreads library being compiled in VS2005 that was 
blocking us from switching to VS2010 entirely.

We have a resolution for that issue on its way but it will be some time yet 
before it gets pushed out.
In the cmake thread, Patrick said that he had managed to get rid of the need 
for pthreads entirely to workaround that issue. 
If we can do that then yes I think “soon” would be accurate, but I’ll need to 
figure out what the impact of getting rid of pthreads is first.
