Another snippit... it will be alot better to automatically generate
C++ than to automatically generate Lua. If the Lua code is bad in some
way, it'll die a mysterious death every once in a while when the
codepath runs. If you generate bad C++ code, half the time it'll be a
compile error.

I would just make some rigid rules about how the generated code deals
with memory management to prevent memory errors. 

If you are already on windows, you could consider generating C# instead.
