Caching build objects: Waf and ccache

Hello everyone,

I have a very specific question about the Waf build system. I apologize if
I missed this information somewhere in the documentation.

>From looking at ./waf --help it doesn't look like Waf would have a
ccache-like functionality built in.

When using CMake build system, I am used to providing


that makes CMake switch to using ccache. Is there an equivalent option for
Waf or is there a native way in Waf for caching object artifacts?

Thank you,
