I strongly disagree. Our libraries inherently need to be configured, and having defaults that appear to just work (but aren't necessarily what you want) is harmful. We have plenty of those in libc++ (like that ABI library you use or whether per-TU insulation is provided) and I won't repeat that mistake in pstl. If you want convenience (which is a 100% fine goal), having a pre-populated CMake cache for common configurations is the way to go.
