If you have a constant PERSON.NAME all you need to do is refactor the
constant and change the constant value. Instead of going through
hundreds of broken lines of code, which is a mess even just in
principle.

I would say that refactoring calls for improvement in the bindgen
approach. Is it theoretically possible to facilitate refactoring with
bindgen? Is it practically possible to facilitate refactoring with
bindgen?

This is a great big plus.

I'm just saying that it should be made even better.
