Or maybe you did run waf build and it didn't re-build some of the python 
stuff because you didn't also run waf check.

Basically, I'm getting very suspicious of anything waf has to do with python.

My straw man is that waf --notests build should not build anything with tests 
in the name and waf check should not build anything that doesn't have tests 
in the name.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
