Not to me, sorry.

No, it does not, but my concerns are just what they are:
*my* concerns. If everybody else in the developer community
sees the necessity to dump the old build system, I will just
maintain a separate build system somewhere else for as long
as I have the energy to do so. It seems I am the only one
having any concerns at all, everybody else is enthusiastic
about the new build system. So I am probably just wrong in
this whole thread.
