It is even more important that it HAS been done already.
You can *right now*, check  out kdelibs trunk, run cmake with -GKDevelop3, and 
have kdevelop projects e.g. for kdecore, kdeui, etc.
IOW you can right now start developing kdelibs 4 with kdevelop.

cmake comes with a project file generator for kdevelop. 
kdevelop doesn't have a cmake file parser/editor (except the text editor with 
features cmake syntax highlighting) yet.
