lua_pushliteral is putting "Call" onto the stack, and lua_gettable is
replacing it with hook["Call"]. (lua_getfield does the same thing as
these two functions, but is (slightly) slower.) The second item on the
stack is the "hook" table, which is removed here since it's worth
getting into the habit of remove stuff you no longer need from the
stack, as it has a limited capacity.
