If you want to link with a C++ library that is indeed the 'proper' solution.
As far as I am aware "several languages all have that requirement" is simply
a theoretical scenario that doesn't actually exist. What else beside C++
requires this?

Regardless, I agree that dropping OpenCV support is the likely outcome
or "solution" here.
