  One further test.  This time, going by what Lua 5.1.4 *does* and not by
what the documentation *says*.  

static int atest(lua_State *L)
  int v1;
  int v2;
  int v3;
  v1 = luaL_optint(L,1,-10);
  v2 = luaL_optint(L,2,-50);
  v3 = luaL_optint(L,300,-60);
  printf("VALUE: %d %d %d\n",v1,v2,v3);
  return 0;

  A stack index of 300 is way out of range and thus, what does luaL_optint()
return?  Well, let's run it:

Lua 5.1.4  Copyright (C) 1994-2008, PUC-Rio
> require "atest"
> atest()
VALUE: -10 -50 -60

  Hmmm ... Roberto, can we expect this behavior, or is this a detail of the
