Hi Peter,

I, for one, have stopped writing build files about 4 years ago and I
haven't missed them one bit.

How have you achieved this excellent result?

I spent a long time trying to write a single build script that would infer dependencies from the filesystem layout and then just works as more files are added / moved. That's sort of functional, but it struggles with code generators and still contains a list of what libraries various executables should be linked against.

I'd very much like a good solution to this.
