I want to be able to call my own C function, that has the same properties as
exit (cleans up, handles the error) but does not have the nasty side-effect
of exiting my process. I'm imagining something like this:

int defaultExitImpl( lua_State * L )
  exit( 1 );

... during lua_open ..
L->exitFunc = defaultExitImpl

Now, we add a function like lua_setexithandler( lua_State *, lua_Cfunction )
to which I can pass my own exit handler. Let's imagine this was stored as
part of lua_State as "exitFunc"

so now, where ldo.c currently calls exit() it can now call



Does that make sense?
