Portable gas stoves safe for indoors?

I rent, and our house has and electric oven and hotplate. I've gotten used to them, but sometimes I just really want gas! Especially for wok cooking.

I'm considering getting one of those small camp stoves to use for this purpose. Problem is, all the ones I can find say "DO NOT USE INDOORS!"

Is it really a big danger? Are the manufacturers just covering their butts?

I'm in Australia - butane camp stoves are pretty cheap to buy. Would these get hot enough for wok cooking and are they safe for occasional indoor use?

Are there any options? There is really nowhere outdoors where I can easily cook, being able to plonk a portable stove on kitchen counter would be soooo much easier.
