write_clinic_file tells Clinic to start writing to the clinic file, which I think is best to do at the very top of the file.  include_clinic_file spits out the #include, which you probably want near the bottom of the file, just before the static module declarations.  You can't put the #include at the top because it may refer to typedefs declared further down.
