Yes, but connecting these two we conclude that, since the io library
exposes its FILE pointers, then C modules should be built with the
same C runtime library as the Lua io library -- ie, the answer to
Scuri's question (whether we could be restricted to an environment
where the constrains he listed would hold) is "no".
