yes they are.

you just have to understand how to use coroutines.  for that, it's a
lot easier to start with a small prototype using Lua only (no C).
when you get the feel of how coroutines work, it won't be hard to use
them from C.

for starters, a coroutine is like a function that can yield() instead
of return. after that, you can resume() it and it'll continue right
after the yield()
