True, but it calls the GC method.  My point is that I do this:

    lua_pushuserdata(L, &(obj.vec), Point::getTag());

And the problem is that the GC method defined for the Point  tag does 
something akin to:

    Point *obj = lua_touserdata(L,1);
    delete obj;

I'm going to give tolua a try, as several have suggested.

       Now I lay me down to sleep / CVS, I pray, my code to keep.  
       If disks crash before I wake: / format, newfs, cvs up, make.
