I don't know what examples you are referring to, I started with PETSc in

I don't see a lot of logic currently being done on the Python side and used
from C, petscconf.h does not have logic in it. No C source files or function
bodies are currently generated by Python. It sounds like you want to
generated imperative code in Python and call that from C. I think that would
add complexity.
