I can't answer your question, because I haven't worked out the order Waf
executes code, especially what code is called when reading the wscripts
and what code is called when actually building.

If it wasn't likely to be true, I'd suspect some sarcasm here :-)

This means being almost completely idle on the academic side (because
learning Italian and new math tools already takes much time), but as my
PhD starts in January I feel like I can afford going for it; it will
make me more aware of Waf code than be productive on wscripts for
LilyPond, but this seems necessary to make those maoing wscripts
actually work.
