Trying out SCons

I'm starting from scratch at a new job, and I just couldn't bring myself to write a makefile for a new project yesterday.

I've heard good things about SCons, so after perusing the user guidefor about 30 minutes I was ready to build my first SConstruct file and get going.

Looks great so far, but I ran into one issue right off the bad. Indendting is important. The SConstruct file is a Python script, so you can have any leading indents! No problem if you've written any Python before, but it took me a few minutes to come up with that one.
