(a bit of self-promotion...)

i haven't used LuaTask precisely because of that limitation on message 
passing; my solution is HTT (Helper Threads Toolkit), it makes easy to write 
non-blocking C modules, so that you can easily poll with a coroutine-based 
Lua scheduler.

as examples, i've written file and TCP I/O modules, as well as a simple (but 
efficient) scheduler.

check it in http://luaforge.net/projects/helper-threads/  but don't waste time 
with the packaged r-4, go directly to the CVS head.
