almost as simple, and with nicer messages, would be to swap it with a 
generic 'object closed' metadata.

but either of those approaches would fail if the Lua side has another 
reference to an object method.  In any case, the first thing the method has 
to do is to check the object's type (or 'class'); and that should fail for a 
closed object
