Neil Hodgson likes to keep his dependencies very simple with SciTE.
But there seems to be no problem with debugging external Lua programs
which link against lua51.dll.  I've supplied a .def and .la file (easy
to generate a .lib from the .def) so people can llnk extensions
against SciTE itself. Although I've found that I can just e.g. require
'lfs' in SciTE Lua and it will work, as long as the package.path is
set properly.
