Well I'm not very used to C++ and probably aren't the right person for
such a task. I may specify a simple API but someone else has to help me
with the wrappers. 

I just need some dpkg commands so I don't know if it's the right way.
Besides isn't there a libdpkg and is libapt a replacement for it?
