[Numpy-discussion] [numscons] Would having two mandatory scons script per package be acceptable ?

    Short story: it would make my life simpler to have two mandatory 
scons scripts per package instead of only one. Long story: for some 
reasons linked to scons' notion of build directory, having two scons 
scripts files per package (instead of one) would simplify quite a bit 
some parts of numscons, as well as simplifying the addition of custom 
builders (for swig, cython, etc...) by other people. One of the two 
files would basically be exactly the same as the current one, and the 
other one independent of the package (always the same 3 lines). This is 
a bit ugly, but less ugly than the actual contortions I have to do to 
make scons and distutils play nice together.
    Is there any strong feeling against this ?
