That's cool, especially using LuaRocks as the cross-platform build engine.
However, you still have to use the Lua API in such inlined code, just
as in luatcc.
A piece of the puzzle can be provided by tolua++, which relies on
cleaned headers. Now if the cleaned headers could be extracted from
the inline code, then things would work more directly, and the
marshalling of basic Lua and C types is handled by tolua++. Another
piece would be implementing a simple dependency check, so that the
inlined code is only actually compiled if it changes.
