Unfortunately, we do not have popen2, where you can write to the
process input and then read the process output.  (I believe luaex has
such a function)

Using a temp file isn't so bad, but make sure it's writeable for
everyone. E.g. os.tmpname on Windows gives you a temp file with a root
path (\name), and Vista will bitch for a good reason. os.getenv 'TMP'
will get you a suitable path.
