There has been talk earlier on the list of renaming the standard
library "table" to "array" since all of its functions deal with
arrays. Perhaps 5.2 would be a good time to introduce this idea? You
could keep table=array for compatibility, and drop "table" a few
versions later.

I don't think it is a good idea, IMHO, because things may change in the future, and still now there is table.pack, which is expressly designed to cope with non-arrays.
