No it cannot, as it would not then return the address of the userdata,
and furthermore, macro arguments other than L would be used multiple
times, which is a definite no-no in the Lua core.

I would not name the new function lua_isudata, as:
1) there is already the similar sounding lua_isuserdata
2) the function can be implemented in the aux library, so it would
have luaL_ prefix
3) I'd prefer luaL_touserdata rather than luaL_isuserdata, so that it
returns the pointer or NULL rather than 1 or 0
