Oh, just stop complaining. There's absolutely nothing that's stopping 
application developers from using whatever build system they want. This is a 
decision about our modules in svn. And guess what, basically all those build 
files were written by hand here. 
So again applications are free to use whatever they want. If they want scons 
great, if they want to continue using autotools awesome, if they want to 
switch to cmake fine as well. This is about our modules and we're picking a 
build system. It's supposed to be building code. Any problem you have beyond 
"building code" goes right to your todo.
If an application developer has an ide that supports build system X he/she can 
use it and that decision has nothing to do with what we're doing here. 


Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.
