Sory, I think I dind't explain well :(
You don't need to pass countreferences and findallpaths as a parameter of traverse. Inside these functions there's a definition of the function that should be passed to traverse and the call for traverse.
So, instead of traverse(countreferences(a)) you should use countreferences(a).

I'll see the problem with the version.

Here is how I try to use it. Is it OK. ?

traverse( countreferences(a) )

Here is the tool. You can implement a function that gives you the
information you want and then call the function traverse passing your
function as a parameter. As an example, you can look at the functions
'countreferences' and 'findallpaths'. But if these functions already gives
you all the information you want... well.. that's better =)
But it hasn't been fully tested yet. Please, report me if you find any bugs.

        You can do that in Lua itself, using some reflexive facilities. I
        someone in the list did some tool for this. A student of mine also
