Well, the choice is between requiring another dependency, with all the 
version problems, and including it in the sources; also, although numpy 
would not depend on scons in any way with the changes I suggested for 
1.0.4, it would have helped detecting problems on some platforms. And I 
hope that in the end, scons will be used for numpy (for 1.1 ?), once I 
finish the conversion.

I don't see situations where adding 350 Kb in the tarball can be an 
issue, so could you tell me what the problem would be ?
