That's the thing though:  I _don't_ think the same thing can be said
of __tostring.  There's no real meaning expected of the resulting
string (e.g. there's generally no particular expectation that the
resulting string be parsable by Lua), so for the most part, so the
"simple" interface is basically fine.
