make typeComponents less fragile

Description

Currently, stackDefines.py is generated dynamically from GenStackDefines.py, which is great.

typeComponents.py, however, needs ot be maintained by hand.

The purpose of this issue is to somehow combine the functionality of stackDefines.py and typeComponents.py, and have both be auto-generated.
