I have some progress on this, but that is more on a personal
experimental level and not (yet) broadly discussed in the INAETICS
I have no problems doing this work in the Celix repro, actually I
would prefer that.
But currently I using python to work with IDL stuff. I am not a python
expert, but the language - for me - fits the problem. Is there any
objections that we add some - for now, don't known about later -
python code, purely for code generation -  to Apache Celix?
