I think it is an awful idea.

Maintain a native Nmakefile and nothing else.

Windows is a much simpler system than *ix and is thus much simpler to
build for. Maintaining the one native Nmakefile seems worthwhile,
since it is convenient for users to be able to build without first
having to install the cmake scaffolding.

I am against cmake in general, but that's another discussion.
Regardless of whether cmake or not I think the Nmakefile is the best
way to support VS.
