Er.  Well.  I am almost entirely sure that your current approach of

    for graph in self.translator.graphs:
        f = Function(graph)

is not really going to work.  Have you looked at how (say) genc works?
It first computes names for everything (the 'LowLevelDatabase'), and
then spits out the code.  'everything' includes all the types
referenced by the graphs, and because the graphs have been rtyped, the
types you find are things like instances of ootype.Class.

I'm not sure this question, as phrased, makes sense :)
