I'm going to see about implementing this second option.  Perhaps just a file
with the functions defined that the generator checks before spewing it would
be ok ?  This way we could implement what we wanted, and let it generate
stubs for other stuff... basically it'd just be 'overriding' the stub 
if a real implementation existed.

Yep.  I'll work on this and exceptions at work tomorrow.  I tried to keep 
it from breaking (which I think I've done), but we'll see what happens
when I add exceptions ;-)
