You seem to have lots of ideas that involve, to a greater or lesser extent, changes to the syntax of Lua.

Surely the nice, clean, solution to your problems is some sort of Scheme like hygenic macro system?

That way you could define whatever extra syntax you like in it's own package, and then include and activate it through a require statement, without impairing the understandability of the original language, and with a clear indication of where new syntax elements have come from.
