I see that lanes is in one way similar to rings in
that each thread would have a seperate lua_State(where
I assume it can also load modules of its own), though
it can run in parallel.

My experience with rings however has one critical
issue(which is not actually related to rings but lua
and certain C library like the mysql bindings) in that
if I load the mysql library inside a ring, there is no
way to properly clean up the memory used inside that
ring(not necessary because of lua but more likely

At the moment, my work around for it is to load these
offending C libraries modules inside the main
thread(or the hosting environment of rings) even it is
not used. Then I can start and stop rings multiple
times without seeing the RAM usage going up.
