You don't need an error handler because the stack is not unwound when
a coroutine dies due to an error. This code will append the standard
traceback you're used to.

  local function aux_resume (co, status, ...)
    if status == false then
      return false, debug.traceback(co, (...));
      return status, ...;
  local resume = coroutine.resume;
  function coroutine.resume (...)
    return aux_resume(co, resume(...));
