Does it require extensive modification to the
source code? If not, maybe just providing a tarball
with the scons scripts for testing would be more prudent
that commiting the scripts? I don't mean to be
pessimistic, it's just that I am a bit wary of
a build system that before yesterday I had never
heard of...
