No you don't. In particular you only need regexes if the cmake script
itself uses a regex somewhere and thats not used that much - AFAIK. For
translating the plain text of a CMakeLists.txt into some abstract
structure you don't necessarily need regexps. CMake itself doesn't use
regexps to parse its own files either.

Anyway, lets see how your caching idea works out before throwing away
existing code.


If your life was a horse, you'd have to shoot it.
