Two points:

  1. I doubt that by the time we finish porting to a whole new build system, we will even
have anyone *wanting* to contribute. With each delay and push-out on releases, and more time
spent working on the build system instead of AOO itself, we become less and less relevant.
Is that really a priority we should be focusing on? Are the number of people knowledgeable
around scons really greater than what we have now? But I could be wrong, which leads me to

  2. "The conversion from gbuild to scons would largely be automated, fast and correct." If
that is the case, let's test that theory right now.
