Yes, that's the approach that Perl.NET takes. You could look at what they
did as a potential model for wiring things up.

This is exactly, what I'm trying to do. I don't want to port Lua to .NET
... just be able to call .NET code from Lua. The calling convention
which Lua (by default) uses for callbacks poses a problem, though, as it
prevents me from passing delegates to Lua ... which is the only method I
know of how to call back a C# function. So, I wanted to mention this to
the Lua community ... I can easily compile a Lua DLL, which allows the
passing of delegates by changing the calling convention to stdcall.
Somebody mentioned the existance of LuaPlus per private mail. It has a
managed wrapper of their enhanced C++ Lua interface, but I just wanted
the bare bones Lua API (for starters).
