Short and sweet, and unambiguous. The last line is much cleaner than its predecessor, which lacks the colons.

Perhaps. But it's inconsistent and confusing. Two attributes which a language thriving to do more with less should avoid at all cost.

In my personal opinion, Lua core should work in terms of only one construct, namely the all encompassing table with it associated dot notation.

While the colon might be handy if you favor one programming style versus another, it's mostly syntactical fat as you can achieve the exact same effect using plain tables.

Plus, excess of sugar is bad for your health and make your teeth rot.

Those are just my opinions :)
