Subject: [Boost-build] Boost.BuildV2 Python migration, SCons?

Hi all,

Interesting that Python has been proposed as an alternative to the
internal bjam language:

I found the Boost.BuildV2/bjam native language difficult to fathom. Some
time ago I successfully implemented it, experimentally, as a build
system for XORP, however, we have since moved to using SCons, which is
working well for us at the moment. Some of the constructs in there, I
borrowed from our bjam experiment.

I wonder if there has been any thought or discussion about possibly
moving to SCons (which uses Python), for building Boost itself?
