SWIG seemed a nice tool although I recall that it wasn't so easy to use (but
that was ages ago).
It's good that Eckhart Koeppen has contributed a SWIG module for Lua (there was
already a link to it in our add-ons page).
In any case, there's also tolua, which knows all about Lua and works for C++
libraries too.
