Other way around: that algorithm is based on table.concat().

My statement stands: table.concat() is the fastest way to do it.
There's no other way to do it without exposing yourself to quadratic

(Okay, so you could do some sort of a tree-based concatenation to get
O(n log n), but at that point you're constructing the list anyway and
you might as well use table.concat().)
