Well, there are 5 CDBS packages using CDBS, but one would assume that 
since there is no scons.mk, most packages that use scons are probably not 
going to be using CDBS.

I don't have a convenient way to grep for scons in all the debian/rules 
files in Debian, but but Googling for 'scons dh_installman' suggests there 
are a few times that many debhelper packages using scons.

I'm currently using the following implementation of scons.mk for my 
package; I don't know scons well enough to be sure whether it's good, but 
it's certainly expressive enough for my package:
