Yes, your 100% correct on the individual module specific needs. That's why I was
thinking along the lines of a 'minimal cmake recipe' that you could then dig
into the files) for the individual modules and then plug it
into the top-level CMakeLists.txt or in the
CMakeLists.txt|cmake/modules/(whatever) files for the subdirs.

I'll go to trinity-desktop on freenode and see if I can get an answer to the

"If I were going to look at the cmake setup for an existing trinity module that
I could use as a quasi-template to adapt to other modules that need to be ported
--> Which existing Trinity module would provide a good reference to use?"

If I can get an answer to that, then I can feel confident that I'm looking in
the right place.

It's kind of a twist on the old adage, "it doesn't matter how fast you can run
-- if you're running in the wrong direction, you will never make it to the
finish line" :)
