A very valid question was raised on #lua this morning.

  Why is lua_setmetatable()'s return type 'int' rather than 'void'?

My own 10 second scan of the function in the 5.1 source suggests that it can
only ever return 1 and as such, should probably just be void.  This seems to
remain the case in 5.2-beta
