Unfortunately I can't really accept that solution as the

Furthermore, you may notice that

 #ifndef LUA_API
 #ifdef __cplusplus
 #define LUA_API extern "C"
 #define LUA_API extern

is perfectly valid C code, which completely eliminates the
need for any C++ specifics, and would keep the issue in
question from ever arising again. There really isn't any
benefit in not writing a header like this, so why not?

Surely we'd then just get people who want to compile Lua as C++ complaining?
