Hmm I don't quite follow you on that ;)

How is the problem here (pass an extra visibility flag) to make stuff testable 
different from making your code debuggable (pass an extra -g flag)? In my book 
it isn't. The debug thingy is handled with CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE through 
RelWithDebInfo and friends.

Anyway I'll take a dive into cmake doc's later to check if this is user 
extensable. Compiling twice is not an option really ... way too slow (would 
you always compile twice to get debug symbols? Not me nor anyone I know.).

Related to this: I will need an extra build configuration for the third part of 
my SOC: coverage. Gcov needs some linker flags to be added. It would be nice if 
this is somehow abstracted away for the user.
