[ finishing a half sentence without prompting this time :-) ]

But to get truly fluent native bindings, you probably need some added
convenience layers. Variadic functions are typically convenience layers
for C, but remember:

 - Some languages don't *have* variadic functions
 - Some languages that have variadic functions would consider using
   them bad practice (C++ in particular, because you lose static typing)
