I would love to see both being supported buz not at the same time. It
should be a compile time option

The code already supports destinations, and in a limited way template

I think sources are the most difficult, the others are relatively

prefer to see each part as it is done to completion, or proceed in parallel
for all components (eg., wrapper APIs for all, then Python APIs for all,
then completed documentation and examples for all).

I think this is up to you, I am not the official mentor though :)
