With experience of lisp and something like haskell or SML you
should be good.

Here's a useful trick you can use when playing with the generator:

The generator writes a list of all the files it generates to
'generator/files-generated.txt'.  So start with some upstream version
of libguestfs, build it, and take a backup of the generated files:

  for f in `cat generator/files-generated.txt`; do cp $f $f.orig; done

Then apply a patch such as this one, or do your own development.  Now
you can compare what has changed in the generated files by doing:

  for f in `cat generator/files-generated.txt`; do diff -ur $f.orig $f; done |
  less
