I use the PPA service on launchpad.net to great effect for that. Take most
recent (packaged !!) version from Debian, adjust debian/control and
debian/changelog ever so slightly, upload to launchpad and use the thusly
generated version on older Ubuntu and e.g. Travis.   I need to blog about that...

As far as I know, some packages already use cmake. See e.g. this query among
the GitHub-mirrored CRAN packages:
