- all C files may potentially contain Argument Clinic headers that
modify them in place
- build input files (configure.ac, etc) may change the other build artifacts

At the moment, I think we're still relying on humans to notice those
problematic cases, but we may be able to at least have CI fail if
"make regen-all" actually changes any file contents for checked in
