    lua plugin: A first and very simple take at read callbacks.
    Apparently it's not possible to export a pointer to a Lua
    function to C. We therefore use the "registry" to store the
    callbacks there. They are fetched in "clua_read()" using
      lua_pushstring (l, function_name);
      lua_gettable (l, LUA_REGISTRYINDEX);
    It is now possible to register read callbacks using:
      collectd_register_read (function ()
        -- do some work here
        return 0;
    As a special case, global functions can be registered using
    function names, too. In that case they are looked up in the
    "globals" table.
