Perhaps I should describe what I want to do. In ufuncobject.c there are a
lot of generic loops that go into the ufunc API and I would like to generate
those loops using a template, so what I want is something like: generate
code from template, scan for UFUNC_API tags. At the moment these actions
occur in that order, but ufuncobject is not on the list of template files
and generated code is placed in the build directories and the code that is
scanned for tags is in the original source directory. I think the whole
process would be streamlined if *all* source files were treated as templates
with the output going into the build directory, and then all files in the
build directory were scanned for API tags. Alternatively, we could generate
the API files from a separate list. The latter actually makes sense to me
because the way it is now there is no central place to track the API except
by looking at the result of a build.
