8. object equality vs. object identity.

10. complexity vs. simplicity.

Hmmm... yes... well... I still have to see that famed simplicity manifest itself in anything more ambitious than diminutive code snippets. Where is that full fledged, killer Lua application lurking?

5a. implicit super vs. explicit super.

I was kind of hoping that someone would point out a cunning way to have it both ways :))

Hurray to that!
