Can I just lodge a complaint that it seems that the people at VTK are using VTK to push CMAKE unnecessarily. Its virtually impossible to use another build system due to all this code generation; if you are going to do code generation, then do it while VTK compiles, not during compilation of downstream products. Certainly not in the build system.

By the way, just adding these things to my build does NOT work for vtkImageSliceMapper. I get

Error: no override found for 'vtkImageSliceMapper'.

I'm currently spending my time reverse engineering cmake code so that I don't have to move my entire build system to CMAKE which is stupidly complex for something that should be simple.
