You can say it, it's actually the worst approach :)

It's works OK though, doesn't require additional tools (eg. 
SWIG/Cython/etc) and is probably more efficient/smaller than using FFI 
stuff from ctypes module, although it probably doesn't really matter here.

+1 for some form of introspection/code generation.
