(Incidentally, while putting closures into the table does allow you to call methods using . --- which is a very neat trick, BTW, I'd never thought of doing it like that --- it does mean that you can't get hold of a generic method pointer. I've just written some code that does this:
Yes, you can.
If you get the instance method, you really get the closure, not the real method. But if you get the class method, this is the real method, no wrapper.

object = class()
function object.method(self)
    print(self, 'object.method')

m1 = o.method -- instance method, get the wrapper
m2 = object.method -- class method, get the real one

(or do I miss something?)
