Well, first of all picard created it for CorePlayer to ease our working 
process. I don't think he even thought about using something else. Then 
we realised other ppl could have use for it (it's now used in DrDivX 
too) as it's very simple and efficient.

 From what I saw cmake needs an installation and many files and maybe a 
shell or interpreter. Coremake only needs a C compiler that all devs 
already have. It also handles ASM out of the box, not sure CMake does 
that (I have made a zlib using the ASM for ex).

Coremake is still maturing but it's already very usefull as it is. I 
started to move mkvtoolnix (and all the dependencies to it) but I fear 
it's not very UNIX style yet (ie it doesn't use a config.h from a 
configure script for all dependencies). But if you want to avoid 
dependency hell and build all your code and dependency yourself, it's ready.
