Not exactly, Arnav will know that. But it's not really too big a
problem for a project this size. In fact I do the same thing in

Granted this isn't best practice, but the effort required to do it
right (whatever way that might be) was inordinately large for the
scope of the project. At some point someone who's trying to patch this
part of the code might get stuck, but figuring out that generated code
was edited isn't difficult at all, as neither is asking the maintainer
how the code works.
