Sure, but the name mangling schemes are certainly well-defined.  The GNU
c++filt program on my Mac understands the following formats according to its

I don't know what most of them are, but I guess c++filt does.  I imagine
something like ctypes could be trained to know how to decipher the
signatures as well.  There's still the problem of templates.
