If I create a metatable (lua_createtable()) and use lua_setmetable()
to associate the metatable with a table and do not put the metatable
in the registry with luaL_newmetatble(), am I right in thinking that
because the metatable is is referenced by the table that the metatable
will not be collected?
And when I delete the table, the metatable will be collected because
it is no longer referenced?
