Would it be correct to say, "all functions which take a stack index

   luaL_checkany(L,X+1) is undefined.

BTW, is there a way of knowing "available stack space"? Alternately a "bool lua_isacceptable(L, index)" would be a nice function to have. 

int lua_checkstack(lua_State *L, int extra);

Actually, on reflection that's not exactly what you're asking for. But lua_gettop ( gets you the size of the stack. So these two give you what you need, or not?
