I don't think running directly out of the source tree is very interesting.  
Many of the python programs need our python libraries and one of them is 
hooks to some c code.  The only sane way to get that is to run waf build.

I suppose it might work to use the installed libraries.  That would work as 
long as the code you are running doesn't use any extensions that are included 
in the new libraries but not the installed version.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
