Indeed they can't. If one combines a type override and an old, incompatible, library, then that's indeed a problem. However, being a consequence of their own actions, it's also *their problem*.

Seeing as it appears Lua has a nasty habit of subtlely breaking backwards compatibility as it's version number increases, I don't see how this would be a real problem anyway.
