Comment (by guest):

 Yhc used SCons - and it really didn't help. By the end we had 10,000 lines
 of python build stuff related to scons. I don't think this will be a
 productive exercise, given I know that Duncan has already thought about
 this problem.

 Yhc moved to SCons because KDE decided to move to SCons, and that seemed a
 good advert. After Yhc moved to SCons, KDE gave up and moved to CMake,
 perhaps CMake might be a better place to look for inspiration.
