D and C APIs

I am guessing that people have an answer to this:
D making use of a C API needs a D module adapter. This can either be
constructed by hand (well it can, but…), or it can be auto generated
from the C header files and then hand massaged (likely far better). I
think the only tool for this on Linux is DStep.
This is all very well for a static unchanging API, but what about C
APIs that are generated from elsewhere? This requires constant update
of the D modules. Do people just do this by hand?
Is the pain of creating a V4L D module set worth the effort rather than
just suffering the pain of writing in C++?
