+1 for @foo
IMO, this is the most representative one, this is the symbol that has the
closer signification for this use

Subject: Re: [ANN] Lua 5.2.0 (beta-rc1) now available
Right now we have a proposal, with code, which works, which is blessed
by the Lua developers. So I suggest that we stick with that.
Particularly since the *developers* are the ones making the decisions
here, and not us.
Plus, I suspect that right now they're entirely sick of everyone
bickering over GOTO label syntax when they'd much rather get feedback on
the rest of the stuff in the beta...
This time, however, we would like feedback about the syntax for labels,
because of the small incompatibility of the '@' with filenames. (Note
that "local name" and anything similar that mixes gotos with variables
is not a *syntax* for labels and is completely out of our plans.)
Some real contenders:
1) keep all as it is
2) change the indication of filenames in debug info and in LUA_INIT
we are also considering to enforce a single occurence of a label name in
each function, to avoid ambiguities. (That does not change the visbility
rules; it is only an extra restriction.)
Of course we need feedback on the rest of the stuff, too!
