Veering off topic slowly but surely, but I suppose the way I would approach that is to give the comparison function a descriptive name. LessThan, GreaterThan, or the like, and maybe keep it in the global scope. Then you could justify it by calling it a "predicate." =) I wouldn't call that inelegant.

I see now thanks. Perhaps an inline function addition would be nice,
though it seems to be an almost distasteful addition. I just find
these constructs inelegant:

local x = function(a, b) end
function sort()
  table.sort(sometable, x)
