I'm not going to do any work on it, but I have two requirements here

 - We should not end up maintaining two separate bindings. We want to
   minimize the duplication of code to as great an extent as possible,
   as close to zero extra overhead as possible in fact. The generator
   will help, but there's still hand-written C code & python code that
   we really don't want to be duplicating

 - We should be able to build both python2 & python3 at once. ie you
   should not need to run ./configure --with-python=2|3, in order to
   choose. We should detect both python2 & python3 at once & build
   both if both are available.
