Just as a precision: I am the only one so far working on this (using 
scons instead of distutils), and no decision has been made whether it 
will be used at all in the future.

Yes, I though about that, it would not be too difficult to handle (and 
scons has a simple mechanism to ensure a given version), since scons is 
called externally (it could be a option given to the scons command 
inside distutils, for example).
