No, that is not a bad idea, if your use case allow it, this is the
best way to do it.
OTOH, C++ and Lua, compiled in plain C, really do not play well together.
You may try to use LuaJIT 2, it is ABI-compatible with most of plain C
modules (at least ones who play by the rules), and (I have an
impression that) it covers C/C++ error handling, if built correctly. I
did not check it myself though.
