My first reaction when I read the filrst quote is that the information
is available on the stack just before you issue lua_call,
and that passing the value as the first, not the last, parameter would
be very easy.

The I saw the second quote, which shows thw OP thought about that
solution and rejected it.

When I came to the third quote, I was baffled. Where do you plan to
store the required value if not on the stack?
