Maybe I am not thinking this out correctly but here is my thought
process. I plan on having some modules that use LuaSocket so I figured
that if I could I wanted to just use LuaSockets for everything. This
is to cut down on the bloat of including 2 socket libraries (the C
library and LuaSockets) so I was hoping that for my straight C code I
could take advantage or somehow call the LuaSockets C functions and
for my Lua modules use the same library but make the appropriate Lua
calls. I just dont want to include more libraries than I need to.
