Yes, but its performance is awful on large tables. It is basically
quadratic in table size.
Actually, I don't think your code handles a table with the key false.
function noxt(table) return next(table, nil) end
for key in noxt, table do table[key] = nil end
But that doesn't get around the performance problem.
