I notice that this file (and all of the others I looked at) say at the  top:

// DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - it is machine generated -*- c++ -*-

So, perhaps it's not the .h files we should be parsing, but whatever source
files were used to generate them.  Though, of course, some C++-to-Perl6 tool
would be a good thing too.  :-)
