Hi. I should point out that internally tolua++ adds a variable declaration 
that looks like this for each additional base type:

	tolua_inherits parent* __parent__;

so it's just a regular variable, with the 'tolua_inherits' hint, which 
produces the code that casts the object correctly. You could add something 
	tolua_inherits parent* p;

and then use 'myobject.p:method()', which is a bit less annoying :) This 
should also work for cases when the object can be converted to other types 
(like 'operator type*();')
