I vote for no autogeneration, it is evil , and promotes mixing stuff
without thinking about the prototypes, this in turns makes it more
difficult to clearly separate our internals and our ability to split the
code in independent libraries.

It is fun for small/autocontained projects, and it is ok for
autogenerated code like the ndr stuff. But in general autogenerating
headers leads right down the mess we are now trying to solve in
samba3 .. the mythical libbigballofmud ...
