Did I miss the reason for this change in 5.1? I haven't even started
playing around with 5.1 because I want the dust to settle first.

My libraries (5.0.2) rely on the documented behavior of
luaL_newmetatable() and luaL_getmetatable(). I don't currently use
luaL_checkudata(), mostly because of ignorance (I thought it threw an
error, not just returned NULL). I'll replace them if necessary, but what
is the new way to associate a type name with a metatable?
