I don't know about waf, but I do know that I tried to add OS-X 
application bundle support to scons, and it was really, really painful. 
It sure seemed like it should have been easy to do -- it's just a 
well-defined directory structure.

There was some work done to use it for wxWebKit, though I don't know 
what's come of that:
