I'm considering what to use for build_system/pacakger for multi-platform
Py3(Qt) project using cffi-generated bindings for 3rd party C library and
ability to build docs - HTML & PDF (user manual) written in reST/Sphinx?

There are tools like SCons/Waf as well as Bento
(http://cournape.github.io/Bento/) which has its own simple build system (for
building python bindings) and even Waf back-end and serves as packaging

Otoh, I just noticed that setuptools & distribute will merge, so the whole
situation does not seem to be very clear.

Any recommendation what to use for the above, I assume, typical Py3Qt4(5)


It is far better to discharge one's prescribed duties, even though 
faultily, than another's duties perfectly. Destruction in the course 
of performing one's own duty is better than engaging in another's
duties, for to follow another's path is dangerous.
