Yes, I think you are right: coroutine.wrap is not usable for now.
However, I would avoid the "Do something at exit" policy. I would
prefer to change the coroutine.wrap implementation to something
__gc/__close -aware [1].

For create/resume instead, I am not fully sure that any automatism is
a good idea. Maybe a lower level design is more flexible: if you
really need, you can use them to build wrappers with automatic
__gc/__close calls [1].


[1] Something like:

local function cowrap(f)
  local thread = coroutine.create(f)
  local closed = false
  local function doclose()
    if not closed then
      closed = true
  return setmetatable({},{
    __call = function(_,...)
      return coroutine.resume(thread,...)
