Urm, how to put this another way...
When I create a state, I load an associated script file. I want to add
some variables into the state the script is running in that are only
visible to that script. I can add globals using lua_setglobal(L,
"myvar"), or even lua_setfield(L, LUA_GLOBALSINDEX, "myvar"), but there
doesn't seem to be an equivelant for locals.
