This thing is pretty f*%#ing cool!  Thanks for writing this.  It has more
features, and is easier to use than what I was trying to do, so I'll
definitely be using this.

One small point:  Is there a way to print a table?  You can print the keys,
if you know them, but I didn't see a way of reflecting a table.

I have a special print function (called ppr), which prints the first level
keys if the variable happens to be a table.  So I can say:

exec ppr(myVar)

This works ok for me, but I'm always looking for ways to lazyfy my typing.

hi, here is one possible implementation.

function TableDump(atable, prefix, tablelevel)
   prefix = prefix or ""
   if tablelevel == nil then tablelevel = "" end

   print(prefix.."-Dumping Table "..tablelevel, atable)
   prefix = prefix.."  "
   local n = 0

   for k, v in pairs(atable) do
       n = n + 1
       print(prefix..n..":", tablelevel.."["..k.."]", v)
       if type(v) == "table" then
           TableDump(v, prefix.."  ", tablelevel.."["..k.."]")
