Hmm - and I suppose going down the route of having global state that
tracks open Lua states is a sticky path best avoided.

On a similar note, I've once found myself in a position where it would
be convenient to destroy a lua_State from within Lua, and have it return
to the top-level calling C function.  I can quite imagine some
stickyness in doing that too, but has similar ever been considered?
