There's a bunch of potential uses: implementing exceptions and threads
from within Lua. The ability of storing the stack state at a moment in time
and then starting it up later would also be handy for some applications.
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to send a lua program across a network
while it was in the middle of executing?
This assumes your only using lua to call into C and come right back out
without calls back into lua - since that involve the C stack. This is
the case for my application.
