Sorry, but no.  I took a strong stance against *any* manually hackery
and over time that stance has proven to be a good one.  Imagine we'd
done this with other bindings -- that would by now have negated all
the good work we did with the generator.

Please explain why the generator cannot get this right, but a human can.
Is there some missing information we need in the generator?
