- Subject: lua_setmetatable's return type

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
