Well, Lua supports calling both ways. A call isn't a straight C call,
though (in Lua, it's a straight Lua function invocation), but a call that
follows a certain calling protocol. Going from Lua to pure C or pure C to
Lua requires a bit of glue code much like sqlite does for its parameter
bindings.

Am I right that if we were to run this experiment with the move-tracking-2
branch code, that the entire client and library would be subject to
conversion to the higher level language?
