Ok, just inspecting the error message is no problem, but what if you
want to look at the context of the error?
Function lua_printstack() from iolib.c (now liolib.c) shows how to get
detailed information about the current callstack.
This function seems very usefull for the use by custom error-handlers.

Is there a reason, why lua_printstack() is not exported?
