(2c follows)

I have looked at waf and used Scons and bjam to build non-trivial
things. Currently, I use Scons very heavily. I would like to say that I
think bjam is the best out of the three except it lacks heavily in
documentation. An issue I have with Scons is speed only when my windows
FS needs some TLC.

As far as waf goes I won't say much else except multi-phase = bad and
that waf does do a lot of other stuff really well.

Personally, I'd like to see python as the language for extension in bjam
but that's just me :)
