On naming, my first (incorrect) impression was that Squeeze might have
something to do with data compression, like Lua Squish.

That aside, for binding generators, I suspect it is helpful for the
docs to have descriptions and examples of what typical input and
generated code output look like. IMO, the structure of the generated
code implementation matters in terms of the extent to which it can be
trusted and performs. With so many binding generators, it can be
difficult to otherwise evaluate their suitability.
