We are using the internal builder for our products. We have a common code base for different plattforms (projects). We don't have spaces in the project names, but it's true, the clean command doesn't removes the build  output reliable. But this not a real problem (maybe confusing) because it can be done external.
For use it's sometimes erroneus, when we a add new sources to the common code base, than we have to exclude this manually in some projects to prevent the compilation of the added sources. It would be fine, if new sources should be added explicit to the project, not excluded explicit.
And there is still around, that we have patched in our local CDT Environment. 
We have our own tool chain.
