Frankly, I don't know (and don't have much incentive to find out) what's better/easier, strip the unneeded parts from the cmake plugin or start something completely from scratch.

I've seen only 1 aspect for now where meson is very different from both configure and cmake: you cannot reinvoke it in an already configured build tree. Instead, you have to use the mesonconf executable, which doesn't have exactly the same calling signature.
