Let me sum it up:

- it is a cmake alternative
- it has a saner syntax
- it is written in C

- doesn't have documentation
- adds not much for the people with a working make/sh

- you'll take the burden to keep it up to date
- new IDE users would feel better with their native bloatconf
- you'd like to extend it to suit ffmpeg needs and other needs beside
yours specific

That said if the documentation appears and having support for it won't
require effort for the other developers beside reply to your question
when we do some esoteric changes to the makefiles, I think is reasonable
give it a chance, given we are trying to move to git maybe won't hurt if
you maintain it on a separate branch/your local repo and let others pull
from you to check it.
