Suggested the latter, to apply to the per-type metatable. I have notified this to the authors already, but no feedback on the particular issue. Basically, we'd need separate "byte size" and "length" operators, which by default would be the same.

Make that apply to strings as well?
As a quick example, would allow UTF-8 strings to be returning the
real length (in characters); not the number of bytes.

That would (unless I'm wrong) require strings to carry around metatables
themselves which is a very big change.

Or did you simply mean check against the string metatable?
