win32com/makepy question

Just a general question.

It seems in COM late binding is something that should be avoided if possible.

Because python seems to be really good at doing thing dynamically I'm
wondering why no one  has figured out how to make the functionality in
makepy fire automagically when you need it.

For example, it would be nice if you are creating an object
repeatedly(ADODB.Recordset) that some logic would trigger whatever
makepy does to generate and cache the modules generated from the
typelib that's accessed.

It would be cool, that's all I'm saying. I'm sure the standard
response is "Why don't you write it" and maybe I will, I'm just
wondering if anyone has thought of it before and is working on it or
