Do you want every field to be a property and every method to be a slot?
You can have it right now. It just destroys some optimizations which
C++ compilers can do, e.g. elimination of unused or fully-inlined methods.

I think Michal Kottman (maintainer of lqt project) is doing the right thing (tm):
Clang-based binding generator . In theory it should work for any target
language, and you don't need any introspection API at all.
