I'm using it[*] for a compiler backend, where state functions correspond
to basic blocks in a top-level function, and an entire state machine
corresponds to a single top-level function. Which means I'm calling my
state machines recursively a lot. As I said, one size does not fit all.

[*] Or rather I *would* be using it, but Lua didn't have goto --- it
would constructive to update the clue backend to use the new Lua 5.2
beta and see what the performance difference is like.
