For a project I'm doing, I actually had to do something similar; I have an 
embedded system with no stdio (not even FILE*), so had to hack all that stuff 
out of the Lua core. It was non-trivial. I ended up #defining printf, fprintf 
etc to my own debug functions, and them #ifdefing out the various pieces of 
code that read and write to files.

If I were to clean this up, would it be worth submitting back to the 
maintainers? (This is for 5.1.)
