Given that some of the "facts" there are actually wrong, I think we can
infer Debian people assume Autotools is all that is needed and are
uninterested in new things. SCons has supported sonames for a while,
for example.

Prejudice in these things, as in all things, tends to get reified and
become unalterable fact. This no longer worries me.
