How about using the current fork approach but instead of calling execvp
use lua. I believe forks are pretty cheap on linux, it's the exec that's

If we do it like that we could reuse stdin/stdout, we could pass
arguments via lua tables (like command line arguments now), but we
should have little overhead for the script loading/executing.
