me too, coroutines are really one of the great Lua features, and one i don't 
think could be as well integrated if done as a library.  Besides, since 
they're _so_ lightweight, i think most projects would be more bloated without 
them (especially deeply embedded uses).

i don't get what's that Pall/Jacobs powerpatch... care to elaborate?
