One question here for clarification: above you write that CMake
delegates to setup.py; however your Wiki page mentions in the
pysubnettree section:

    * Will probably have a thin CMake script to build extension and install module+extension    
    * Keeping the setup.py around may be useful for packagers... not sure

That sounds like replacing setup.py with CMake (rather than
combining the two). So, I was wondering which of the two options
you're planing to follow? 

I'd prefer to keep using the setup.py in both cases, as that's the
standard way to build Python extensions and thus probably more
