Who are these mythical users who need your active protection from tripping themselves with the treacherous  module? "People" cannot handle the intricacies of ipairs at first. Should we kill ipairs, as attempted in one of the 5.2 releases? What about _ENV? That sounds straightforward too. Ah, yes, goto will be a walk in the park as well.

So, please, lets stop infantilizing these mythical "users". Like with everything else, if you don't understand it, don't use it until you do.
