I don't find it easier at all.  The opposite, for a library and
associated helper apps, actually: I much prefer to have the library
(src/*, src/lib/*) separate from helper apps (src/luac/*).  That way,
if I have to build a project file myself, I don't have to weed out
the extra files that aren't part of the library (print.c, lua.c).
