this forces an allocation for the duplication of the string inside the lua
state, that will be discarded from the stack as soon as the purpose of its
presence is fulfilled: it adds an extra load on the garbage collector.
maybe simply exposing a function n=lua_stringtonumber(s) could do the trick,
and if one wants to put the value on the stack, just call
lua_pushnumber(L,lua_stringtonumber(s)) ?
