To say that the backward compatibility is "suspect" is a bit strong, but 
I have some questions about it (questions, not suspicions ;-) Could you 
explain how would you achieve this compatibility? (Remember that, although 
the global events are a subset of the table events, they are not selected 
in the same way. You have only one pair of settable/gettable handlers for
a given global table, but you may have different setglobal/getglobal
handlers for different global values.)
