Hi Gavin,

I've updated my "from" patch for lua-5.1 and put it on the Wiki.

I don't think there are any issues, but I should test it more rigorously.  I'll write a test suite in the next little while.

I can understand why they wouldn't include it in the core; it makes the BNF grammar ugly.

Sorry to see that Peter Shook's "from" patch
(Lualist 06/09/05) was not adopted for 5.1b.
It is a piece of syntactic sugar that I think
very useful, both for clarity and for encouraging
good programming practice.
Are there any problems I should be on the look out
for in using it with 5.1b rather than 5.1a?
