Must say though stack watches are brilliant for working with the lua stack, although writing a good table printer without side effects/ recursion problems is hard.

Stack watches? Was that a Lua facility, or a specific IDE?

Sorry should have been more clear.

When programming in lua - c side I have a function that returns an array of strings (the stack), with each value printed neatly, with a watch on it. As you step through the code you can see the state of the stack at any point in the watch window, simplifies debugging.

Not a standard lua feature though but not too hard to write.
