I would be willing to accept cmake provided:

1) it supports distributed compilation in a reasonable way
2) it is supported by kdevelop in a reasonable way
3) the number of supported platforms stays the same
4) there is a relatively easy migration possibility from
   the automake build system to cmake.

where 1) and 2) are IMHO the critical factors in cmake adoption.
