I guess "the Lua way" for a kind of std lib may be precisely that: a basic, light & right set of tools.
The issue beeing that there is AFAIK no "Lua style", in fact htis is precisely a trait of Lua and its community, I guess. So, there may be endless discussions on numerous style aspects. First of all, global/functions vs OO, and OO variants.
