If there's something quick that ends up making (3) work, that'd be
ideal of course, but I don't think it's worth spending much time on,
given that there are reasonable ways to get a more recent cmake.

I wouldn't want to go back to not shipping CAF at all, but if we can
tell cmake that 2.8.12 is fine if users build CAF themselves, that
would be the 2nd best option I think. (1) ist worst case, which still
isn't too bad IMO, unless it does actually prevent us from building
binary packages for RH, that would be a problem.
