  Okay, that looks good to me and considering that I would like to push
a new release real soon, it would be a bit sad to not have the python bindings
for the new functionalities. Please apply :-), thanks !
  On a related note, I think I would be ready to drop the generator stuff
in some recent future, I can see how it makes things rather harder, and does
not provide that much value considering we are trying to keep a rather small
