In ‘core-updates’ it’s now possible to specify file patterns, so we
could look for *.cmake files under lib/cmake or share/cmake like this:

    (variable "CMAKE_MODULE_PATH")
    (files '("lib/cmake" "share/cmake"))
    (file-type 'regular)
    (file-pattern "\\.cmake$"))

Would it help?  What else is needed?
