Intentional, but perhaps not completely well-considered.  The intent was 
to remove conflicts with names Python already uses - having Warning as 
the base class of all Python warnings and also as the name of the base 
class of all SCons warnings had some potential for confusion when used 
unqualified - obviously there's no issue if every single mention of the 
internal one is spelled SCons.Warnings.Warning.  The same change was 
made to EnvironmentError, the internal one is now SConsEnvironmentError.
