One of my design principles has been "like CMake but with a saner syntax"
so I'm glad it's showing through. :)

I did have some discussion with Qt Creator guys and as a result made Meson
extremely easy to embed into any IDE, not just QtCreator. Here's the
documentation on that:


Unfortunately the QtC guys are very busy and did not have time to create
the integration bits.

To tie this into Rust, if someone wants to create a Rust IDE with build
system integration (compile, unit tests, debugging said unit tests etc) and
they already have an editor component, integrating Meson is just a matter
of parsing a few simple JSON documents.
