Maybe I don't understand the underlying problem the acceptfd patch
addresses, but if it's simply a matter of getting the file descriptor
from a luasocket object, then you can use the :getfd() function.

Quoting from:

"It adds a new method “acceptfd” which works just like “accept” but instead of returning a socket object it returns the underlying “file descriptor” (a number). A new optional parameter to “socket.tcp()” allows to create a socket object from a file descriptor."

So you could accept connections in a given Lua state and process it in a different one. Be it by means of using Lanes, LuaProc, or whatever suits you.
