As far as C++ wrappers, I haven't had the opportunity to use it yet, but have you looked
at luabind (http://luabind.sourceforge.net/)?
I think it's unfortunate that the various extentions out there these days (like extended
metatables) aren't maintained as stand-alone patches to the official distribution. Such
patches were popular in the Lua 4 days (see http://lua-users.org/wiki/LuaPowerPatches),
but the art of careful mix-and-match friendly patching seems to have been lost somewhere.
I added a LuaPlus link to http://lua-users.org/wiki/LuaAddons.
