I had the impression, that you wanted to implement a new object
type and sometimes have it as userdata and sometimes as a table
with the C-code automagically converting between these two
representations invisible to the Lua program.  And IMHO that's
calling for problems.  Maybe I should have better said: choose
_one_ representation for your new type.

Sorry, I'm the wrong one for tolua.  I know nothing about how
tolua does its work.

What's weird with this?  It's just the "I do and I understand" ;)
