Isn't this a general problem? As I recall, the convention when generating
Python modules from C header files is to simply convert the base name to
upper case and replace ".h" with ".py" (errno.h -> ERRNO.py). From h2py.py:
# Without filename arguments, acts as a filter.
# If one or more filenames are given, output is written to corresponding
# filenames in the local directory, translated to all uppercase, with
# the extension replaced by ".py".
Perhaps the convention should be instead to append "d" or "data" to the base
name (errno.h -> errnodata.py).
