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?
