That would also be my strong preference. It would add yet another set
of build scripts to maintain, but it still seems to be worthwhile. I
suspect the only reason it's not already in the tree is lack of time. I
wouldn't objecrt to adding cmake support for 7.2 if it only adds files,
and thus doesn't risk breaking anything.
I'd probably favor sticking with cvs for now, since I think that's what
most of us are familiar with. (Svn seems close enough for experience to
mostly carry over.) If we did want to switch to a git-like model, I've
also heard arguments for Mercurial recently, but don't have any experience
