Yet this shouldn't make it difficult to spend 10 minutes to apply
incredibly simple patches. I know that a 10 minute context-switch can
disturb your more important work, so there should be someone who can get
this done, for my sake.

Among others, yes.

Yes, we can do that work (and other wrapper generators can do that work
too), or these simple patches can be applied. In general, I don't
complicate the wrapper generator unless absolutely necessary. For
instance, if it's impossible to get the necessary change made to the C

We do have several hints/options for other issues already.

Thanks. That's the simplest fix.
