I think OO programming in Lua (with inheritance and polymorphism) could be 
done even without resorting to metatables; I am not claiming this to be a 
better way, just that it could be done.
I am working on it for a small demo I am writing, and I plan to document it 
later. It relies on the "self." idiom you don't like, though.
