In general this seems like an excellent idea.  If we can contribute
what we need to scons, that would greatly ease the burden of
maintenance, and benefit both projects.  The key problem will be
support.  At the moment Pearu maintains and owns numpy.distutils.
Will we have the same level of commitment and support for this
alternative do you think?

How easy would it be to throw up a prototype for the rest of us to
look at and get a feel for what the benefits would be?
