I have tried implementing the same thing for a game engine. There
also has been many threads about this subject in the past. Basicaly
there is 2 approaches. One is to use co-routines and seperate the
global and "thread" specific components of a Lua state. The other is
to make Lua non-recursive (which will probably be implemented in
Lua's next version).
I have posted some code snippits from my engine a few months ago and
there has been sevral discussions about the subject so i suggest
searching a few months back in the mailing list archives (or use
www.egroups.com to do a search).
If you have aditional questions, don't hesitate to ask me.
