Because of things like that and we may also want to have some functions
translate from between NTSTATUS, WERROR and HRESULT, we may want to
have a generic, samba.errors module that contains all of them.

So we may want to have a py_ntstatus_init(PyObject *m),
py_werror_init(PyObject *m) and py_hresult_init(PyObject *m)
which are called from a handwritten initerrors() function.

And I'd like to use a define instead of integer.

PyModule_AddObject(m, "NT_STATUS_SUCCESS",

should be

PyModule_AddObject(m, "NT_STATUS_SUCCESS",

Or we use a define to make the lines shorter.

#define _ADD_CODE(m, v) do {\
	PyModule_AddObject(m, #v, \
		ndr_PyLong_FromUnsignedLongLong(NT_STATUS_V(v))); \
} while(0)
