I think that creating a tool to translate a static header to a dyn 
header should be easy to create (i'm not talking to convert c header 
directly ;-)).

Should do the following right? Correct me if i'm wrong:

Static function:

function foobar_dosomething(a:cint; b:cdouble): cint; extdecl;external 

Becomes a dyn function:

var foobar_dosomething: function(a:cint; b:cdouble): cint; extdecl;

I can write such tool.
