If I understood the proposal right, to benefit from this unified source
feature the developers have to use CMake.

Does this means that Apple ports are going to switch to CMake?

If this switch to CMake is going to be optional, then I only foresee
constant breakage and headaches for those that choose to use the
non-default option (the one not tested by the EWS and release bots).
