It'd be tough for there to be anything more official than the API itself.

Personally I always hand-roll my bindings in order to better match whatever
library I'm binding to the ways of Lua.

I find that automatic binding generators typically produce a binding which
feels no better than using the C interface and often results in huge Lua
wrappers to clean it up and make it Lua-ish.  I also find that the API is neat,
easy to understand, and no harder to use than any of the "binding helpers" out

Then again, I don't try and bind C++ and I don't try and bind dynamically
changing APIs.
