Good. So, is there a standard way of introducing a kind of customization? Either as a handy toolkit or for specific needs of an application. By "standard", I mean a kind of lua-style.
I think at
* a lua equivalent to subtyping builtin types
* a lua equivalent to overloading "Object" (root obj/type) in a prototype-based PL
[Note: I don't mean there should be such features, just to know.]
PS: I'm reading the 2 docs about evolu-a-tion pointed at http://www.lua.org/map.html, under "documentation": great! They answer loads why-s i intended to ask on the list one day or another.
