I think Pierre may well have done the hard work here since this is
exactly what he's doing.
Although I have a question for him: how are you storing the results of
the header parsing? Obviously it would be an expensive operation to
repeat each time. What is the 'database'?
I am impressed with Jerome's bindings: looking at his examples, these
are proper Windows API programs, done in Lua. Definitely something
that needs to be part of LfW, even if as an add-on via LuaRocks.
A question for Fabio: what are the issues with Alien for 64-bit Windows?
