Neither one nor the other. There is no "lua_rawsetfield", but this
is not an oversight. Some people may need lua_geti (no raw version);
others may need a lua_getfieldl where the key is given as a string
with explicit length (and of course some will need a lua_rawgetfieldl
too). There are endless variations. Lua provides a few variations
for the cases we feel are more common.
