For inspiration, the mslink tool does this (as does the qt tool) - see
the somewhat messy SCons/Tool/mslink.py.
Meanwhile, while many tools use add_emitter, the code for add_emitter
itself includes this comment:
This assumes that emitter has been initialized with an
appropriate dictionary type, and will throw a TypeError if
not, so the caller is responsible for knowing that this is an
appropriate method to call for the Builder in question.

So I guess "expected"? although pretty awkward....
