This PEP doesn't seem very well-argued: "It's a common mistake to
leave off a comma, and then scons complains that it can't find
'foo.cbar.c'."  Yes, and then you say "oh, right!" and add the missing
comma; problem fixed!  The whole cycle takes about a minute.  Is this
really an issue worth fixing?
