Can't we use coroutines?

The test case writes about threads, but it wouldn't be the first time the rules be "abused"... :-)

I still didn't get around the coroutines spirit :-<, so I am not sure I can do this myself. But I would be interested to see the result :-)

Note: I think we can provide two implementations: one with pure Lua coroutines, and another with, say, LuaThreads.
Usage of external libraries is allowed in the rules.
