yep, i realized that manually choosing which methods, and how to use
each was _a lot_ of manual work, so i didn't consider that a bug, nor
even a missing feature, just a natural shortcoming from the use of
automated bindings.

the not-so-bad workaround is to create dummy C++ classes that reexport
the needed methods.  i did for a couple of tests, but soon found all
my time eaten by daytime web projects and a little girl that calls me
'papa' :-)
