As a data point: we require so much stuff to be installed on Windows
before you can build LLVM and Clang, and CMake is basically the
easiest prerequisite out of the bunch (they have binary packages, a
common installation strategy, and don't require manual steps to get it
to work). There are far more painful things I would prefer us to take
issue with than CMake prerequisites on Windows.
