yes, this example fails with the current toLua.
toLua needs the parameter name.

It certainly is. I started building toLua to attend my own
needs. As I thought it would be useful for other lua programmers,
I put it available.

toLua can be improved a lot. In fact, the new version 2.0,
that I will release with Lua 3.0, already offers several 
I need feedback to know how it can be more useful for others.
For example, the possibility to avoid naming the parameter
seems to be quite easy to implement, but I hadn't needed it yet.
