Of course, the only really interesting thing in my wrapper was the
iterator class. The wrapper overall still exposed the stack because I
didn't want to muck with managing references and leaking memory, but
it provided conversions between a Lua value and the tagged variant
class the rest of that project was already using. It also kept track
of stack indexes if you asked it to, and of course the API was
formatted like the rest of the project so it looked prettier than
random old-school-looking C calls interspersed with modern
Java-inspired C++.
