If I change the source, the .dll or .so needs to be re-created. That's
a build step, and as such I'm going to want to automate it. Whether
I do that using a Makefile or some other tool isn't the point. The
point is that if I'm required to use a point-and-click interface,
then I can't automate it.

If there is an alternative interface that can be automated, that's fine.
But either way, the point and click interface is useless to me, and
therefore not a selling point for me in any way. I suspect the same
is true for many other people on the Python lists.
