My one exposure to CMake was when I was fixing (and helping to fix) a build issue for Blender that had an experimental (but optional) feature.

My general impression was that I saw a general similarity to autofoo but it seemed as if it was a little simpler in some ways. One thing I definitely liked about it is being able to do multiple compiles of the program in to different sub-directories, each with a different enabled feature set. It allowed me to have both a git master version of Blender at the same time as a version that had the experimental feature compiled in. It made it easier to test the experimental version while still having a reasonably stable copy for regular use.
