Will it be internally stackless? Presumably the hard bit is making it stay
stackless when it calls C; not doing that would be forgiveable, and in the
common case (where a C program starts a Lua thread, which calls C routines,
but they do not themselves call back to Lua) the Lua part could still be
nicely stackless (with only one Lua "stack").
