I did not touch f2py, don't worry :) I meant the scons tool f2py: tools 
are basically the interface between general tools (compilers, linkers, 
interface generetors like swig, etc...) and scons. Because f2py itself 
is meant to be used in distutils, which is command based, it was not 
trivial to adapt it to a tool like scons which is target based (that is 
handle dependencies through a DAG, like make).
