Hello all,

I'm trying to avoid a potential denial of service situation with the execution of Lua code where a user can enter code that takes a long time to run, thereby hanging the interpreter. Proving to be more difficult than it seems.

Run the interpreter in it's own thread, and simply kill the thread if it takes too long?
