- Subject: object methods as first class values

In lua functions are first class values, that's nice, because lua functions
can be used to customize behaviours the same way callbacks are used in C,
ok = Button()
ok.onClick.add( exit )
However, in an object oriented environment, you would not only want to use
functions but also object methods.
ok.onClick.add( app:exit )
that's not valid, but could be written as:
ok.onClick.add( app.exit, app )
the first sintax is more natural since you already do app:exit() to call the
method. I'm wondering if 'app:exit' could be expanded to 'app.exit, app'
when used as a function argument. In general that won't be desired, since
then you would be able to write things like:
a:f = b:f
and that would be replaced by:
a.f, a = b.f, b
that of course is not what you want.
What do you think about this proposal?
