As you could notice this API has not been covered by BridgeSupport
yet, and gen_bridge_metadata is still suffering from bugs too (we plan
to provide a better implementation of this tool in the future).
In the meantime I think the best way would be to wrap the necessary
calls in an ObjC wrapper, as you suggested.
