I think that would be outright perfect. I am not concerned
at all about the developer's build machine having to provide
python. It is the end-users box that I have problems with.
If we ship a shell-based configure and Makefile in the final
samba-latest.tar.gz on generated by waf, I think
this would be the best of both worlds.

Thanks for that proposal!
