Yes, I object. It has some substantial incompatibilities with cmake
2.4.8 that break some of the software I work on (Second Life). The
bugs in question are fixed in 2.6.1, but I don't think it would be a
good idea to build and push that, either: you'll break *someone*
unexpectedly, and they won't be reading this list until it's too late.
