Not to try to quibble with your decision making (it sounds completely reasonable to me), but two objections:
- You have to learn python to use Scons.
Feature, not bug. All make systems are specialized mini-languages which tend to slowly sprawl. Python is a relatively mature well-stewarded language which many people already know, and hews more closely to most people's programming experience than most build-tools do. In essence, learning python is easier for many people than learning Make.
- And CMake isn't tied to Makefiles.
If this is a response to the parent (which I can no longer see), apologies. But of course, neither is Scons.
