Yes, but I think it is more practical to have the build process to be 2
and 3-compatible.

For the exception catching, one can have a few utilities to walk through
the stack - I don't remember how I did it for the relative import, but
this was not a pb IIRC.

I am quite disappointed that numscons will not be usable in the
foreseable future for py3k, I hoped it would have been simpler than
numpy.distutils, but porting scons to py3k is too big of a task.
