You can wrap the C++ API using tolua and still write some Lua glue code
to make it more friendly (see Admittedly it
probably wont be as efficient but it's less error prone and much quicker
than doing everything by hand. Sometimes its just a huge unnecessary
maintainance overhead if you have a large - and potentially quickly
changing API.
