FWIW, when it is ready, I'd strongly prefer to use cmake for  
everything.  We should have one build system to rule them all, and the  
whole reason that cmake seems awesome is that it covers all the build  
hosts we care about.

That said, I don't really think the file globbing is that big of a  
"feature".  If it turns out that we don't get it with cmake, that's ok.
