Hi Benjamin,

No huge objections from our side. As you have already seen, I have
anyways not been able to keep the build systems in synch due to lack
of time.

Regarding the completeness of CMake I am not sure if I know what you
mean but then I am also not really an Autotools specialist.

I understand your reasoning for dropping VC support but it will make
contributions and bug fixes for Windows users much more difficult
because MSVC is the most widely used and user friendly IDE on Windows
(the latter is just my personal opinion). We would have never been
able to make our contributions to OpenSlide with a pure cygwin build
to due to involved debugging which was required.
