   Owing to an extensive test suite, the SCons team believes that this

       didn't during implementation.L

     - Error messages don't always exist where they'd be helpful.
       Please let us know about any errors you ran into that would
       use if you you want to fix your version of Python to support
       parallel builds in SCons.

+    - Extremely long command lines (thousands of characters) can

     - Again, the "SCons Design" documentation on the SCons web
       site is currently out of date.  Take what you read there with a
       grain of salt.
