Seems pretty accurate to me!

That's clearly the main issue currently with the code generator: it's full of 
black magic. If we move the code generators into separate library we should 
also provide a nice API to generate such code and an easy way to test that we 
just don't generate garbage. I think that's the main blocker -- I'm pretty 
happy with all the rest.
