yep, but it would be far more efficient to do it before loading any external 
script.   unless it's already doing some cache... a simple weak table would 
be roughly equivalent to what i propose

right, that's the limitation of non-preemptive multitasking; but if every 
event is managed on sub-second times, it wouldn't be noticeable for a medium 
group of users.  for wide scalability, fastCGI with SA could help

about the shared global environment, would that be too messy?  i liked that 
part on the lua reference where says "Q: how do i avoid.. ?  A: if you don't 
want to do something, just don't, Lua doesn't have protection mechanisms" (or 
something similar)
