I'm thinking whether it is possible to modify Lua so that it doesn't do setjmp/longjmp stack unwinding. One idea is to set some "bad flag" in the state on throw, indicating that evaluation should short-circuit until it gets either to nearest try, or to top level. I did not find any patch or discussion about this. Has anyone attempted this before? How large could be the required the change to the internals?
