Or if you used luajit2, you could use FFI to call system functions. That
would save you mixing in other lua libraries, so you get both compact
and fast solution.

I started working on Linux syscall interface using Luajit FFI for this type of use

It does a lot of the base stuff you need for init, but still needs more work - you can't bring up IP addresses yet, although you can create bridges, do process management etc. Hoping to have some more time to work on it soon.
