That approach is not desired.  People typically want CMakeList.txt under
source control, not its end products, as the latter differ for every
person.  We don't ship .sln files to people, we tell them to install CMake.

I was not proposing this as a solution, I was asking you to figure out
how to implement it.  I have no idea how to write a .sln or .vcproj file
that will convince the VS IDE to come up with a non-Debug configuration
by default.  I just tried manually reordering the configurations to put
Release first and the IDE still selected Debug at startup.  Even
changing the Release configuration to have the name ARelease (which
comes before Debug lexicographically) didn't fix it.

I have no idea either, nor time to investigate it at present.  I will note our lack of knowledge in the feature request.  Maybe we'll run into someone else who knows better.
