The idea would be to continue to enhance CMake to support the mobile 
IDEs better as time moves forward.  We need something that is seamless 
across windows, mac, and Linux, and works with iOS and Android.  Having 
to maintain N different IDE files in VTK will never work.   NVIDIA has 
been working on adding this type of support to CMake:


We worked some to get the build and debugging working with Eclipse here:

Ditching CMake does not make sense for VTK, it is how VTK is developed. 
  CMake does need some enhancements to make it work better with mobile 
development environments.  Working on enhancing CMake would be a much 
better place to put effort than to have multiple build systems inside
