I should note that Pauli really did most of the work.

Not by me at least. The first obvious issue is that scons is not python 
3 compatible, and I don't know the timeline there.

Also, I am spending most (all) of my "free" time on bento, my 
distutils/setuptools/etc... alternative, which should make something 
like numscons much less relevant (with the same advantages, though). I 
don't have time to work on numscons at the same time, except for the 
obvious bugs,
