All third-party APIs I've
bound to Lua (for example win32, libpng, freetype, opengl, ode, fuse,
etc.) were so different from each other that each time I had to take a
different binding style.

That's a difference between C and C++.

There is a great variety in styles in C because C doesn't standardize a lot of things.  In C++, virtual functions, memory management, exceptions, and overloading have standardized representations, and there are natural bindings for it.  That's why tools like tolua can generate high quality bindings for C++ almost automatically, while they can't do the same for C.
