-- The following can open some of the installed Apple DLL's on your
Windows machine
-- and later execute code from them. Docs are online
-- Kind of nifty that you can just give this to anyone, and if they
have luajit.exe they can run it!

sure who installed the Apple Application Support)

-- Either set the working directory so that CoreGraphics.dll would be
able to find the rest of the DLLS
-- Or add (not done) that path to the PATH environment (ahem, it's not
exposed in the "os" module, but now that FFI is here it's doable)
