Hi Kevin,

Sure, I appreciate the point about poor use of the tools.

But getting back to the meatier issues -- can someone please point me
towards:

 + directions (and examples!) for using CMake for multi-language
   compiles and cross-langage linking (esp. C/C++ and Fortran)
 + creating shared libs for the above
 + manuals (and, if possible, "shining" examples) that describe best
   practices for non-trivial projects

Ed
