Which gets us to another problem.  VC6 and VC7 (VS.NET) are not that
compatible.  They use different runtimes (msvcrt DLLs), and so their heaps
are incompatible.

Is Lua 'heap-safe'?  ie, is all memory allocated by lua freed by lua, and no
external memory used ever freed by Lua?  If so, this may not matter.
