No, only those apps that accept arbitrary user code. Those would use luaL_load
if they want to avoid running user code in binary. Existing apps that run
binary code from known, safe sources, such as their installation directories,
don't have to change anything. We expect those are the majority of the apps.
But perhaps our perception of what apps are out there is wrong.
