It is just an idea.
proposal.1 foreachi() with more 3 arg.
In my experience, I ended up with creating my own version and not using
the standard function foreachi(). I am not sure about how foreachi()
is accepted as a standard function in Lua, but
proposal.1 seems to be a trivial task on src/lbuiltin.c which also keeps
compatibility. I am sorry, I did not coded yet.
proposal.2 obsolete foreachi(), introduce foreachindex() with +3 arg
if students mixed up foreachi and foreach, they have a nightmare.
So, teachers can take a following strategy, but it is not good.
I follow your naming anyway. But I just wonder, foreachi() is rather
young and may have a chance to change.
