The : operator in Lua passes an implicit 'self'... in this case,
LuaTestObject.  It is syntactically equivalent to:

LuaTestObject.SomeOtherFunc( LuaTestObject, 2, 3, "blah" )

If your function is corrected to:

virtual void SomeOtherFunc( LuaObject o, int i, float f, const char *
psMessage )

Then the above will work.

But this still doesn't accomplish what you want based on this:

I am releasing a standalone version of the internal LuaPlus Call Dispatcher
this evening.  It does not require a modified Lua interpreter as past
versions have, so it should be accessible to all (but is more convenient
with the real LuaPlus).  It also handles object dispatching, as you have

I'll send it to you offline so you can peruse it before the release.
