A <very> quick scan of the API says, no, but a <very> quick scan of the code
shows lua_dofile calling "parse_file" and then lua_call'ing the result.
So just "export" "parse_file" and friends and poof instant loading without
running (even returning the chunk on the stack).  After all what's a minor
source mod between friends. :-)
