There is a solution. You can generate all code that uses DEFINEMAKECARRAYITER
in some header file and then to include it.

mb = module_builder_t( ... )
for cls in mb.classes( lambda decl: decl.name.endswith( 'Image' ) ):
    generate code to some header file
mb.build_code_creator( ... )
mb.code_creator.add_include( that header file )

I have another solution, but I don't have time to implement it or even check:
pyplusplus can divide every generated cpp file to sections:

1. include
2. space
3. wrapper
4. space
5. class

Then, pyplusplus can define next class:

class on_cpp_file_write_i:
    def on_include( self, declaration ):
    def on_first_space
    def on_wrapper
    def on_second space
    def on_class

Every function return some text or None. In case method returns None
pyplusplus will write the code it have to write. In case method returns some
text, this text will be written instead.
