It's come up a few times, but I can't find the precise post.


Look for "Extend table constructor syntax to allow multiple expansion
of multireturn functions"

"With this patch, {foo(); bar()} creates a table with all the return
values of foo followed by all the return values of bar, while {foo(),
bar()} continues to have the same semantics as current Lua. "

I've also seen {foo()...,bar()} suggested as a syntax, which is better
IMHO because semi-colons are usually just alternative list separators.
