I noticed one bug - tbl_marshal doesn't check its argument type which
results in a segfault if you pass it something which isn't a table.

I'm not entirely sure about the current error policy. Attempts to
marshal a LUA_TTHREAD just result in a nil being stored, while
persisting a C function raises an error. The attempts to marshal and
unmarshal functions of course fail on LuaJIT 2 (probably lua-marshal
should at least check the lua_dump return value).

This seems like a very handy library. Thanks to Alexander for
contributing the benchmarks.
