No, the low-level binding is generated fully automatically, which
is more than can be said for Swig. I spend a lot of time on
typemaps with the Swig binding :(.

Now, the high-level layer is different, but that's 100% value-add
over what Swig gives us anyway. It would not be less work with
the Swig binding.
