Now that I read the full thread :-)

* Having declarative files that are read by both configure and cmake 
would be an improvement. *How* they are read is an implementation detail 
* Having explicit dependencies in both systems would also be an 
improvement (cmake has them already).
* Better IDE integration (VC, Xcode) is a good thing.

It is possible that in the end you are wrong about it being possible to 
change CMake (or use gyp) to generate good IDE files. If that is so, we 
can always move to using them as the "root" format, but that would 
really be just a format change. The important property is having all the 
necessary information in one format.
