Perhaps a better question is: what would it take to fix this in cmake, 
regardless of what the CMake developers think of that idea?

Sam and I were joking about committing a copy of cmake.exe and a perl 
script to fix the absolute paths to Mercurial, so the final .vcproj 
files we would ship would work anywhere...but I'll tell you, if that 
would actually work: a lot of truth is said in jest.  :)
