I'm still not sure, but I think I will add build targets for creating
header files from lua source (char script_foo[] = { ... }, basically
hex dump into a .h) (after compilation to at least check they are valid
syntax). Won't use bycode, we build for 32 and 64 bit, and don't care
about speed, so lua src is ultimate in portability.

Then write my own require that perhaps looks in local directory for
"foo.lua" and if doesn't find it, loads the compiled in script, so I can
try quick stuff without rebuilding. At least thats my plan, still
haven't got around to it.
