That's a very polite way of suggesting I let go of the desire for strong
types :-) 

And you are correct, there is not much I can do with the udata in lua
apart from call C methods, and they already do check the type.

If at some point I do really need udata type checking in lua, I will
follow Roberto's suggestion and implement something like io.type.
