Ooops... I just realized that I cannot pass the function itself right there... as this will have the unfortunate effect of executing it... I was thinking in terms of @selector instead of actual method implementation... anyhow... passing only the object itself will do instead:

local aTask = aConvolutedObject )

Then the 'routine' method can simply call a default method like 'run':

-- private method to wrap ivars.method in a coroutine
local routine = function()
    if not ivars.routine then
	    ivars.routine = coroutine.create( self.object().run() )

    return ivars.routine

And all is good in the Kingdom! Perhaps. Who knows, really.
