I think the only way is to manually destroy it. Insert something like;
Or manually run a GC cycle.
If you create a userdata, have a flag for it being alive or closed. When calling destroy, get rid of everything you need to clean up and flag it as closed. Any further access of the closed userdata should now result in an error. Still leaves the user data itself to be cleaned up by the GC.
