Fair enough. I can see a continuum of styles users prefer from 1) make
good defaults so I don¹t even have to think about it, 2) simplify and
present a GUI, 3) just let me enter the information myself.

The current system did a pretty bad job at 3 which is what I¹m trying to
fix while also doing a good job at 1. Haven¹t thought much about 2 since
having been involved with the original managed build, it was really hard
to do well. At the end of the day, I¹m not sure how much time it saved
users over simply having a well structured Makefile. But that¹s just a
personal opinion.

There¹s been discussion in CDT¹s Bugzilla on how to do that. The thinking
is that we can get that information out of CMake. That is a major
requirement for our CMake support I mentioned in my original post and will
be there one way or the other.
