I think it naturally progressed, because some people wanted to discuss a 
more generic solution.

But fair enough... if the only goal is to build rust, I've very little 
preference, except to say:

Please choose something cross-platform that's as standard as possible, 
and leads to builds as simple as "make" or "configure && make" or 
something along those lines.

At the outside, CMake's "cmake -G 'Unix Makefiles' etc. is tolerable 
(for me), in the name of supporting IDE users.
