This isn't bad stuff (though the name...) -- the individual functions
seems reasonable, and I can imagine using many of them in one
situation or another -- but I think it well illustrates the problem
with projects like this: the set of functions provided seems kind of
arbitrary and all over the place.
Putting this random grab-bag of vaguely useful (but in many cases not
clearly very fundamental) functions into a single library seems
... wellllll ... not very Lua-ey...
The comments at the end make clear the danger -- "please add xxx
... but where do we stop?" -- but I'd go even farther and say it seems
_already_ too big and too "random", and that random grab-bag libraries
are not really what will make Lua more popular.
Future, n. That period of time in which our affairs prosper, our friends
are true and our happiness is assured.
