OK, binding might not be the correct term. We could call it a wrapper, but I 
wanted to avoid introducing yet another semantically ambiguous term.

The "thing" will add mandatory checks for every argument to all calls.

Since this might be interesting for more developers than just Daniel I'd say 
it would be a valid "binding" candidate, i.e. allowed to be maintained in the 
git bindings module.

The low level lib remains unchanged and Daniel gets its safe behavior. Every 
body is happy :)
