Woa, looks like I missed something important on #lua, I'll have to
read the log :) My first feeling is that this is a great idea, but a
simple question pointed out to my mind : when will I need this ? My
Lua experience is very poor, but as far as I can remember of my little
code snippets, I never feel the need for these.
But anyway, it may be usefull to some of the Lua users.

I fully agree with all your propositions. Great job. Hope all this
will be available soon :)
