A Makefile is also a solution. Just put one in each "stage" (libs, release, 
review, playground) and declare the dependencies there.

I wouldn't do a CMakeLists.txt unless CMake is capable of completely isolating 
the subdirs. Because if we do truly independent repositories for each app, 
there will be conflicts in what is required by one and by another, variables 
being stepped over, etc.

That's going away from my stated goals: dependencies resolved by humans.
