You say there is a 'lua-lanes'-like mode of operation, does it mean
that I can something like this?

local tuna = require 'tuna'
local thread = tuna.startThread('*')
local task = thread:startTaskFromBuffer(.....)

This was easier than I thought it would be, after a few hours of research:

Lua 5.1.4  Copyright (C) 1994-2008, PUC-Rio
> require 'tuna'
> thread = tuna.startThread('*')
> thread.startTaskFromFile( "examples/test.lua", "tester" )
> into test

function tester()
    print( "into test" )
    while 1 do
        print( "slept" )
        tuna.sleep( 1000 )

So expect tuna 0.4.2 with "" available to run all of Tuna's functionality entirely from lua. I can release it now [privately] to anyone who wants to test it but it won't be up on the site until it's quite a bit more polished, with some examples/docs, and working for Win32/64 as well.

I do need some advice though: I have *NEVER* tried to publish a shared library, particularly for *nix. Right now it just builds/links very naively: $(LOBJS)s
g++ -shared -Wl,-soname, -o -lc $(LOBJS) -lpthread -lrt -llua

and that works fine if you run lua from the same directory, but I don't know what the standards are for locating/naming it on a standard system. Any help/guidance would be much appreciated. like shouldn't I call it or something? and put it into /usr/lib or /usr/lib64 with an install script?

Just a pointer to a tutorial or FAQ-for-dummies would be fine, I've been googling for the last 20 minutes and have nothing but a headache to show for it.
