Sorry again. I missed reading them. I will read carefully next time.

I found function() can do the trick, without unpack() or {}.
You may try this code:

function a(...)
  function b(...)
    return ...
  return b(...), "a"

Lua 5.0 uses a table named arg to store variables passed to a function, maybe arg[#arg+1] = "a" would work at that time. I have no Lua 5.0 and can't test the code.
