btw, Esteban, check out the latest CMakeVMMaker package.
I trying to invent somewhat more convenient protocol for this.. help me :)

So, what i did is made each CPlatformConfig subclasses to answer
#generate (to generate config only)
#generateWithSource (to generate vmmaker sources and then config)

because it is logical, that each config knows how to generate itself
(StackVMConfig knows which  VM sources it should use etc).

So, i think this script (#generateCocoaVM) should be put into
CocoaIOSConfig or one of its subclasses >> #generateSourceFiles method
as well as many other CMakeGenScripts >> generateXXXX,

So then we could use something simple , like:

CogUnixConfig generate[WithSources]
CocoaIOSConfig generate[WithSources]

i.e. pick config which you wanna use and do the rest automatically  :)

P.S. i hope someday we could even run builds using OSProcessPlugin
directly from image by issuing:

ABCDEblablaConfig  build
