Where's the metadata going to be put, and what's going to look at it?

If it's just going to be discarded (like the const suggestion) then I'm with
Lisa - it's just asking for trouble and (mis/ab)use. Use structured comments
instead and deal with it outside of Lua proper.

If it's not, then I'd rather not pay the space and time costs needed to
handle it. Lua's lean and mean now, and (IMNAAHO) should stay that way.

I`ll second that,
Ability to add custom metadata (or some kind of attributes like in C#)
That can be later accessed from C api.
Somehow like this:

SomeTable = 
	a = 1,
	b = 2,
	objname = "test.obj",

Having the ability to add metadata to variables would be a nice
addition.  This would make it easier to do static analysis of lua

## return_type = number ##
function sin (a, b)
