Well, it's quite basic and needs a bit more work like allowing 
overridden CFLAGS. It doesn't install files like README, geany.html, 
etc. It also doesn't regenerate dependencies for each source file 
on-the-fly like autotools (and I expect Waf) does.

It wouldn't bother me if Waf support was removed, but OTOH it looks like 
quite a lot of work went into it. I don't mind adding obvious updates to 
wscript when necessary, but can't promise to test them ;-)
