A full switchover won't happen for a while anyway -- at least for the near
future, if the CMake files are added, they'll be in parallel to auto*. (The
main logic for that being that until CMake is required for a large project,
like KDE, packagers won't want to mess with it and TagLib isn't something
large enough to get people to learn a new build system over.)
Confidence is the feeling you have before you understand the situation.
