Unfortunately there is no fool-proof method (that I know of) to convert a C
header file to a Pascal import unit.  There is Dr Bob's headconv utility
that does a good job of most of the conversion, but it still needs to be
fixed up by hand to work properly.  Lua needs to be compiled into a DLL and
the Pascal import unit links to that DLL.

Hmm...  I wonder if C++ Builder could be used to generate an object file
that Delphi could possibly use...
