If distros go and upgrade their KDE tarballs to get the new version, what more
hassle is it to just drop in a new CMake tarball before? CMake doesn't have
any dependency changes in the last time I know of and also ships everything
needed inside it's own tarball. So you are right that this is one more
package, but I bet that KDE SC 4.10 would require other things to be upgraded
too. But CMake will be the easiest thing to upgrade IMHO.
