The beta phase will take quite a bit longer than that. Take your
time. :-)

Ah, ok. Looks like some problem with the Lua/C API calls then.
Strange enough, but all of the key functions involved (module(),
luaL_register, luaL_findtable etc.) are the few remaining ones
that are still identical to the Lua codebase.

Umm, have you checked your usage of lua_next() is correct? In
particular the stack adjustment during and after the traversal.

I'll probably have to support all kinds of indexes for the luaL_*
functions. It's more widespread than I had thought. Compatibility
with the quirks of the Lua implementation seems more important
here than following the specification.
