This is quite a respectable approach in the dynamic universe!
But, yes, there's a better way; ask the modules to export an object
factory (if that fails then it's definitely bad) and insist that these
objects all have a metatable which contains some distinct field/value.
This field can then identify the interface; the value can be made as
distinct as you like.
Do you have a simple example of this. This is an intriguing idea and just want more details. Thanks.
