  Yes that's something I wonder about. Except differences
in configuration option, it's bizarre. One possibility might
be that the order of the functions is not the same which can come
from the order of the functions in the hash tables, which can be
python version dependant but will not change the semantic of the
generated file.

At the moment, this is not the case. It might not be annoying for you, 
it might not be annoying for anybody else, but it is a bit annoying for 
me, and could lead to more important consistency issues in the future.

I'm not saying that you MUST ABSOLUTLY change that ; I'm just saying it 
would be better, IMHO, to maintain consistency, and, as a side effect, 
would prevent me to workaround those inconsistencies in my packaging.
I can investigate more deeply on the case and provide patches for more 
consistency while not removing the file...

  My first answer was basically about that. Can you check what the
difference is ? You still didn't answered ...
    "Now if you get a different content, it's a problem"
  I think this is pretty clear, that if the generated bindings are 
different then I will consider this an issue.

  If you just ran diff without any further research then I really find
this insufficient as a feedback for pushing changes, sorry ! I need
at least some data. 

  I probably spent more time at this point asking for data from you
then it would have taken me to fix the problem if I had the information,
it's not fun, I don't want to spend time arguing over an issue for which
I still have no data ! While the problem might be a "bit annoying" for 
you, this is frustrating for me, can you agree with that ?
