 To wrap this thread up.  What seemed like the right thing to do, count
LUA_HOOKCALLs to keep track of the stack depth, is a bad idea.  First
because LUA_HOOKCALL changes meaning when it's a tail call as the stack
depth doesn't change (how about a LUA_HOOKTAILCALL?).  Second depending on
the complexity of your script the hooks add up.  Our 2d game which is almost
completely Lua script went from ~20fps while the debugger is connected to
over 200fps when I removed the call/return events from the hook.
