[webkit-dev] Rewriting binding code generator, maybe?

As a person who does not know any of Perl, Python or Ruby very well, I find unfamiliar Python the easiest to understand (even though I have more experience with Perl). I feel this would be worthwhile, if not necessarily a top priority. I do hope that this could be done without undue increase in verbosity.
