It's not *that* hard to do by hand, and you mostly only have to do it

Don't know how helpful this is, but:
I've only maintained symbols for one C++ library, for a short time (they
can't maintain an ABI or do releases, so I dropped the shared library,
and moved it to experimental)
I found that factoring out 32bit vs 64bit differences and size_t
differences was all that was necessary [0].

Jakub Wilk also did some documentation of the differences between common
sizes [1]
