Yes but this does not obey Lua rules -- it doesn't consult
metatables etc. 

This is weird.. I can call arbitrary functions including
sin and cos .. but I can't add?

hmmm.. I guess I could use lua_load to define + - * / ..
as library functions in the global table and then
wrap C API table calls to get lua_add, lua_sub etc ..
