I'm assuming it's faster to use cmp when the files are the same than running the python script.

There aren't four, there's one symbols file per DOM object. This is because the generator script is called per DOM object. We could use a single file, and append the symbols, but then we would need rules in the makefile to delete the file before generating the bindings, and append the symbols for the static sources, so it would be more complicated. 

Also, I plan to use this to create a -sections.txt file for gtk-doc. Having a .symbols file per object makes it easier, because we know that every .symbols files is a section, and its contents the methods.

I followed the same approach than the other bindings scripts like gobject-generate-headers.pl
