SCons is amazingly policy-neutral, and we work to keep it that way.
(It has occasionally been a bone of contention, when people have
wanted us to support a particular development model by enforcing rules
to exclude other styles.) In other words, there's nothing to prevent
the VS style, although there's nothing that specifically "supports"

I think this is what concerns me more than anything else. I don't
think SCons itself should be in the business of auto-magically
converting sources. Maybe providing tools to help the user convert,
but even that is pushing the envelope.

Unfortunately, that's in C++ and we're a pure Python shop. Moreover,
I suspect the license is incompatible (it seems to use the GNU virus,
while we use the MIT license). But it's a useful reference and I'll
hang on to it; thanks.
Hope this helps,
