Yes, Lua encourages a person to think about that decision, and can
help (willing) persons to re-educate themselves. So often a cleaner
solution involves a closure, for instance.

However, it seems that many are completely lost without their familiar
class construct - we see the same with JavaScript and the attempts to
provide this 'missing' feature (Dart, CoffeeScript).
