cmake : a new alternative to autotools (and dmake) ?

I read a nice entry on the planetkde.org :

How KDE switched to a new buildsystem tool

The blog entry is a link to an article explaining how and why kde moved from autotools to a new alternative called cmake : http://lwn.net/Articles/188693/ I tried cmake this week and from what I saw, it is really nicer to use that any other tool I tested. Maybe some day OOo could rely on it and avoid having to maintain dmake ?
