This comment may be entirely impracticable, because it comes from somebody
out of the loop - and from a considerable distance from the action.
Surely, with a project that involves memory management, string internment
and separate contexts, the answer is to use something like the Lua core
library that manages all these things, with scripting as an added bonus,
as a bottom layer. Or are there other factors that preclude it?
