That's a slowdown I'll gladly accept. I have just discovered how
elegant coroutines are for event-oreinted programming... 
Still, maybe there are some people who'd like to disable 
their coroutines?  For those people, perhaps some 
#define LUA_NOCOROUTINES could be implemented to allow 
turning off the coroutines?
