More code generation is better.  Here is all the code you need to
write to make a new libguestfs API function:

http://git.annexia.org/?p=libguestfs.git;a=commitdiff;h=4ffa2d6798f7a2bf0baec8e1084659cf6358bc31

That's not a printing error, it really is just 38 lines of code.

>From that template we generate:

  - RPC stubs similar to libvirt remote driver
  - bindings in around 8 programming languages
  - <guestfs.h> header file
  - several manual pages, eg: http://libguestfs.org/guestfs.3.html#api_calls
  - guestfish
  - part of the automated tests

This is a huge time saver, and reduces bugs.
