I disagree.

If we upgrade now, I want to have at least 2.8.8
This has a lof of work for supporting cmake's Config.cmake files, and with 2.8.8 
I can finally point users how to create properly working (including Windows) 
Config.cmake files with reasonable effort.

KDE 4.10 is scheduled for January 23rd, CMake 2.8.8 has been released April 
19th, so it is 9 months old.
I think this is acceptable.

So, I'd propose to require cmake 2.8.8 starting October 28th.
