Using cmake

Hi SDL team,
My name is Kashyap and I am a fan of SDL. I appreciate its commitment to minimal dependencies and relying only on a C compiler. I recently got a tiny lisp interpreter (miniPicoLisp) working with libuv and libSDL2. While working on it, I did take a look at SDL3 and noticed the use of cmake.

My gut feeling when I see cmake is - unnecessary complexity/dependency (even indirect dependency on C++ :frowning: ). Could someone please point me to any discussion that may have happened about taking it up?
