this scares me a bit... i was aware of the last problem (yielding across C
functions), but none of the others. the first two are specially worrysome
- for metamethods you mean any function in a metatable? or just the hooks? on
second thought, the methods used for OO-like constructs aren't in the
metatable, but in another table referenced by the __index hook; so i guess
we're safe here.
- for "across iterator functions", do you mean "from an iterator"? or from
inside a for loop? i use coroutine iterators, are those safe?
