In fact, I'd very _much_ like a userdata-kind of integer type, which can
have metamethods. The thing that all numbers are float/double will cause
problems on ARM chips, due to no FPU. :) But that's another story..
Never mind that most of the ARMs I've worked on have no integral divide
instruction. The divide that our compilers generate is very inefficient
so we always roll our own (and different ones for different
circumstances depending on where you need your accuracy), so you'd want
to be able to tell lua to use that division instead if you just replaced
lua_Number and recompiled.
But I digress (too ;)...
