hmmm, couldn't one say that the Lua function 'function(x) end'
expects one argument and 'function(x, y, ...) end' expects at least
two arguments, irrespective of how many they actually receive ?

the debug interface currently doesn't expose the "numparams" and
"is_vararg" elements of LClosure.  it would be easy to add them
(maybe as part of lua_getinfo() 'S' option ??) if someone really
needed them.
