So, waf is a tool to build build systems.  The core of waf is a
third_party library that we consume, and then we provide scripts that
run as part of it (the wscript files and scripts under wafsamba).

So some things we fix in our use of waf, others like how dependencies
are ordered etc we need to fix upstream first, lest we end up
maintaining our own version of waf forever.
