If you add a Java component to a C program nobody expects that they'll just be able to import some.c.code; into the Java and have that work. If you need to access Perl from Python, or Ruby from PHP again, nobody insists that there should be some "easy" way to just mix them together as if they were merely dialects of the same language. In each case you're responsible for handling the adaptor layer. But somehow C++ programmers seem to think they shouldn't need to do this with C, let's not make this myth any easier to believe.
