Besides making a case for a continue statement, writing that code showed me 
first hand just how easy callbacks are in Lua. Back in C I'd do almost 
anything to avoid a callback. Perl wasn't much better. In both languages the 
syntax ALWAYS tripped me up. Here in Lua, it's as easy as falling off a log.

So if nothing else, this exercise is going to start me thinking of problems 
that can be solved with callbacks.
