Library specify?  How tedious.

This might be okay for internal development, but I need to offer a
means for my end users to load third party libraries.  This would
be a documentation and tech support nightmare.

Please please pease lets have a consistant way of doing this!

Why not?  I also find I miss this.  Having to say something like
object.member = object.member + 1 is tedious.  I don't mind if it
evaluates to the same byte-code (ie I don't expect to be able to
implement += as a different tag method than =, that is just asking
for confusion)

Again, why not?  This is handy.  Though I really would like to see
better unicode support and a means of specifying a unicode character
with hex or decimal (like \+12345 or something)

Library specify?  Yes, to the standard io library, and a new Qt library.
This will always be library specific as Lua has no file/UI handling in the
core, nor should it
