I used them today to build Python from svn trunk.
I'll add some documentation how to use them, how to get them and what works and what doesn't work tomorrow.
Ok, it took a bit longer. The wiki page is here: http://paraview.org/ParaView3/index.php/BuildingPythonWithCMake
With the cmake files from cvs you can build Python svn, which will become Python 2.6. It use it for Linux, IBM BlueGene/L and Cray Xt3 (in both cases for the compute nodes, not the front end nodes).
It works also for Windows, but I didn't take the time to check that all the configure checks deliver the correct results, so I just reused the premade pyconfig.h there.
Most modules are built now. For every module you can select whether to build it statically or dynamically or not at all. Source and binary packages can be created using "make packages".
These files don't conflict with any files in Python svn, so if somebody is interested adding them to Python svn shouldn't cause any problems.
P.S. due to moving I'll be mainly offline in the next weeks
