Confusing, perhaps, but it still have some logic...
This allows to manage hollow tables (few values scattered in a big range 
of indexes) efficiently, while managing full tables (almost all indexes 
having a value) efficiently too (numerical indexes instead of hashed ones).
I believe that Lua is able to smartly switch from the first type to the 
second, which is a good thing.
You can still pre-fill your array with 0s if you want your table to act 
like a classical array in most other languages.
