The thread will garbage collected if you don't keep a reference to it.
You shouldn't close it, but when you don't want it anymore, you should
remove references to it so that it can be garbage collected.
http://www.lua.org/manual/5.1/manual.html#lua_newthread: There is no
explicit function to close or to destroy a thread. Threads are subject
to garbage collection, like any Lua object.
