PyQt has binding definition files (.sip files), which are basically C++ header
files (.h) with additional annotations. For those cases, there's an /Out/ or
/In,Out/ annotation in it.

Those are generated in a half-automated way as far as I'm aware, see

(Unless something changed about that in the meantime, which is something only
Phil can answer :D)
