This can get nasty with instances being created dynamically. I can
create hundreds of instances at runtime, and you won't know this at
compile time. You would have to implement the "new" mechanism yourself,
and you'd have to track the locals for all of my instances dynamically.
This is far more complicated than a simple text translation.


The only option that makes sense to me if to use a C++ compiler that
produces an output in the form of C code - C would be the target
language. This would be a full compiler and not a simple program.
