i haven't checked alien (yet) but i feel it could be used 'as is' only for 
trivial one-shot bindings.  but for something more complex, or for 
reusability, an interface layer would always be needed.

and that's where alien could really shine!  by allowing that layer to be 
written in Lua instead of C.

wouldn't that be great? imagine if new bindings could be distributed just as a 
few Lua scripts starting with require("alien")
