Very interesting. I notice that coroutine functions are not available,
because "No application is known for us, so it has not been reviewed
for security." This seems like a great shame to me, coroutines can be
very useful for iterators and all sorts of things, I consider them one
of the best things about Lua. I admit I have no idea about potential
security concerns though - are there are commonly known ones with
regard to coroutines?
