Hi, I am one of the cmake developers. Alexander asked me to join
in on this discussion.   We are of course interested in KDE using

It all depends on what you mean by extending cmake.
If you are going to support a new IDE format like Xcode or Visual
studio, or KDevelop, then you have to write C++ code.  If you are
porting to a new make based compiler, it can be done with cmake
code, and can even be done without modifying cmake.

I think CMake is up to the job, and the CMake developers are willing
to help you with any problems.
