Dirk didnt mean what it does in comparisons, you are correct the
standard covers this. But Lua allows _any_ variable to be used in
logical algebra by itself only, where so far false and nil behave as
logical false, everything else as logical true.

local v = 1 / 0
if v then
 print("it is true!")
 print("it is false!")

what should it do?
