You can access "build" object so it's possible to get access to all build
properties (that are visible in WebStatus):

def checkSCMChanges(step):
        if NoChanges in step.build.getProperties():
                return not step.build.getProperty(NoChanges) in ["1", "True"]
        return True

WBR, Dmitry
