Well, there's always SWIG < >, which already
provides a format for a binding hints file (if one doesn't like what
SWIG comes up with as default bindings), and glue/stub code generation.

Supported languages include Perl, Python, Tcl, Java, Eiffel, and 
even Guile.

So maybe it would make sense to see if SWIG does what is desired
before reinventing any wheels.
