I'm trying to decide which build system to use for a web application. If it were
a multi-platform C++ application, it would be a no-brainer; but only a limited
part of the project is C++, and we only need to support VC 7.1.

One of the tools I'll need to support takes a collection of XML files and
generates web documents. The XML files support several import mechanisms which
generate implicit dependencies. Looking at the Scons docs, it's easy to see how
to scan for dependencies since a custom scanner can parse XML using Python.
Unfortunately, identifying XML import declarations looks like it exceeds the
capacity of the scanners described here: Among other things, I
need to be able to resolve namespace prefixes. Is there some way to do this in
