Like I said earflier, it is *not* possible to copy anything between
unrelated states using lua_xmove, if that's what you mean. It may seem
to work in some cases but unrelated states have disjoint gc lists and
string pools. Once gc runs in the source state it may leave bad pointers
in the target state.
