right, i haven't tried this code yet (it was just off the top of my head).  i 
realized that the url-funcions table should be created before most of CGILua.  
config.lua might be a good place to put it.

or maybe i could store that table with the Stable API?

something like this:

-- store an empty table
stable.set ('ulrfuncs', {})
-- register (sub)dispatcher
cgilua.addscripthandler ('lf', function (path) return stable.get ('urlfuncs')
[path]() end )

-- to register new funcs
function registerurlfunc (path,func)

lots of error checks missing.....

that experiment would be after i feel comfortable with the other additions.   
i still don't really understand why is it desirable to isolate each request 
with a venv(),  what would you think about doing just one venv() surrounding 
the main request loop in the fastcgi launcher?
