Why not have a generator script that loads the definition file, instead of
having the definition files load the generator as a module. The generator can
setup a special environment for the definition file so you don't have to
include the above boilerplate code in each definition file.

I have created a bindings generator  for C libraries. It is designed to
generate OO style interfaces for C functions. It also supports generating
wrapper C functions so Lua functions can be used as C callbacks.
Right now it doesn't support generating bindings for C++ code, but support
could be added.
