Documenting this feature or creating an API for it will also ease the
binding of functions which received FILE pointers. Sometimes the most
natural solution is to pass a standard Lua file object in the Lua
version of that function -- not so easy to do without such a trick
with undocumented features. I got some of these and they will bite me
in the upgrade to Lua 5.2.
