The Meson macros are maintained as part of Meson itself upstream, and
it was changed to use Meson directly with Meson 0.55.0:
https://github.com/mesonbuild/meson/commit/0a61f511aa1960ac0d3f9b5e50e35f5f603b99b7

This change was inspired by the change done in Fedora for CMake:
https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/cmake/c/4e79ea67732aecb6232c33dfff6ab033842cf840

It is incredibly unlikely for Meson to switch back, because this
abstraction makes it possible to trivially switch out backends without
changing the interface.
