You need to analyze CNI (i.e. C++) source code.  You need to recognize
CNI field and method references, which are just C++ field/method
references.  That implies a semantic analysis of the C++ code.  The
logical tool is a compiler. The only C++ compiler we have available is
G++. It does not emit C source.  Adding an option to emit C is a major
project. It is even worse if you want human-readable C.

What you can do is convert annotated-CNI to JNI C.  That loses some
of the simplicity of CNI, but may be worth considering.  However,
that is a quite different idea.
