IMO, what's happening here is that you want (or your focus is in) a

Since the beginning we (Markus and I) have focused on having a flexible
wire interface. In its most part, this requirement came from Avi (please
Avi, correct me if I'm wrong), but of course that I agreed with it.

You've said many times that you don't value non-C consumers that much,
while our focus until today has been on higher level clients.

I realize that I've not been careful enough in my language. The problems I'm trying to address are just as applicable to non-C clients. In fact, I've written a Python client library that makes uses code generation:


It's much simpler than the C interfaces because Python has a bit more awesomeness than C.

The only properties of the Python interface that are different than the C is that adding optional parameters to a command handler works okay, but adding optional parameters to a signal still will not work.
