There's C code and instructions for that in

You could do it in Lua but you'd have to parse the bytecode stream. Not fun.
On the other hand, in the current bytecode format, the debug info is the last
section dumped, and so if aFunction does not include other functions, it's
a matter of removing the tail of the bytecode string. The problem, of course,
is finding out where that tail starts...
