Well, I could use Metalua, this is something that I will take into
consideration, but using it will add a significant layer of complexity
to my software. In fact, metalua allows you to modify Lua as your need
even at runtime but this is not really needed in my case since I want
a simple modification of Lua to be used over and over, always the
same. So, I think that a change in Lua will be justified, the only
problem could be the technical difficulty of implementing this change.
In addition I think that the Lua code base is more mature and stable
than Metalua.
