sorry, i think i misunderstood your original question.  if you want to
check for accidental stack overflow, enable the api_check() macro in
lapi.c (see ).
then if you try to exceed the stack capacity, you will get an assertion

btw, lua_checkstack() doesn't quite work as you described it above.
lua_checkstack(L, 0) is effectively a no-op since lua_checkstack()
never shrinks the stack (see the reference manual).
