KwangYul, have you considered using gyp (and the files already there) rather
than add another generating solution?
Jason, have you considered using gyp to generate your solution?

Disclaimer: I have no stake in gyp nor do I think it is necessarily better
than anything else, but I do care about not modifying 7+ build files for any
file additions/moves, etc.
