I wasn't aware of this. It's on my list for SIP v6 to review the support 
for stubs as it hasn't much changed much since it was first implemented.

I'm happy to take bug reports (and patches!) to fix any issues - the 
automatically generated stubs should be correct without any need to 
maintain separate versions.
