I'm happy to do this, starting with a minimal extension that does
popen and nothing else. The slightly tricky part is returning a valid
Lua file object; first prize if the implementation needs no temporary

(The trickiness is because the file object's close() method would be
responsible for doing any cleanup; the hack is to create a file-like
object (the joys of duck typing) but then one has to reproduce a fair
bit of Lua library code)
