I will guide you :-).

struct X{
    void do_smth( const Viewport& );

wrapper_code_example = """
static void do_smth( X& x, Viewport& v){
    x.do_smth( v );

mb = module_builder_t( ... )
for cls in mb.classes():
    for f in cls.member_functions( function=contains const Viewport& as arg )
        #Next code you will have to replace with something that
actually deals with f
        cls.add_wrapper_code ( wrapper_code_example )
        cls.add_code( 'def( "do_smth", &X_wrapper::do_smth )' )

cls.wrapper_alias will give you the name of the generated class wrapper name

code_creators/calldef.py - calldef_wrapper_t.args_declaration will help you
to get idea how to generate function wrapper code

There is another approach. In this approach you don't generate code,  but modify
code creators tree. I can explain you if you are interested.

My pleasure.
