now this is cool!!
and i was always thinking that this cannot be done, because the reference
called whenever Lua accesses an indexed variable. This method cannot be set
for tables with the default tag.
since i cannot set this tagmethod for "vanilla" tables, i never thought i
could set it for other "vanilla" types.
