I've been following the thread "Mulitiple functions" with interest because of 
my similar problem.  I have lua functions defining C callbacks which need to 
be reentrant.  My C application calls each lua callback in a separate lua 
thread which needs access to globals as defined in the original script file.  
It works well, with the unfortunate side effect is that all callback function 
variables must be declared local to avoid cross-contamination between 

I believe that a low-overhead native-to-lua way of "cloning" functions between 
threads, giving each an environment of your choice would be an ideal solution 
to this problem and a good topic for the round table.
