Not quite. In Lua I am missing Ruby's "ensure" clause.

Let say my Lua script creates a temporary directory and populates it
with some files. At the end this directory together with all those
files has to be removed. How to achieve such assurances short of
wrapping everything else in a pcall (xpcall)?
