Lack of extensibility, and use of another arcane custom made programming
language (if we can call it that) for everything.

No, CMake is not an answer.  It is not significantly better than
autotools to justify a switch to it IMHO.

CMake *is* considerably better. Xcode/VisualStudio are killer features which alone would make a switch worth it.

Can we please start to organize ourselves and try to move forward with switching to another build system?

Johan, you and your JFDI attitued are my heroes :-)

- Decide features we need to do a migrate
- Create a table of proposed build systems x features
- Check the KDE build system migration and see what we can learn[1]
- An obvious option will eventually appear
- Start migrate some modules

I created a new wiki page with some initial content as a common place to gather all the information we have and start a roadmap for this action.
