Lua 5.0
lua_dofile() lua_dobuffer() lua_dostring()
These can be overridden in Lua code by providing a function
named _ALERT

l_panic writes to stderr (happens on aborts)

and the command line interpreter write to stdout

SO if you override print(), provide an _ALERT() function like

function _ALERT(s)

and RTM on 
io.output ([file]) and io.output ([file])

you have most bases covered
