Of course, this sword cuts both ways, 
and we could ask you to change printf by something else. 
AFAIK, printf is only used in one macro, so redefine
that one and you're all set. For the rest, I leave
all such descisions up to the makers of Lua/

However, my point of view is that lua
is not only for embedded environments. 
Lua is for ANSI C environments. If your 
environment falls short of ANSI C standards 
in any way, then it's your reponsability to stop 
the gaps and not ours, IMO. There are 
free open source "tiny" C libraries available.
