Personally, I'd use something other than .h for the generated
file. That usually makes life easier when auditing which files
belong under source code control. It also usually makes things
like custom rules easier to manage in make since you are less
likely to accidentally have a valuable non-derived file
overwritten by a rule you didn't expect to match. In this case,
since the output is not a true header (it must be included inside
a function body, immediately after an open curly brace) using an
unusual name will help signal its nature to code review.

Actually, that could be argued to be a bug in bin2c.lua. It should
arrange to appropriately quote all of the text from the command
line arguments so that it remains a legal C string literal. I'll
probably take a crack at fixing that and propose a patch unless
someone beats me to it.
