Do you think it's necessary to wrap\couple ffi headers with lua
metatables and functions? Ex. if two people have independently loaded
the OpenAL\OpenGL\etc API headers, they can't share utility functions
they've written on top of that API without getting ffi redefine
errors, if said functions are coupled to (encapsulating) the loading
of headers.
