I'd long wished for isindexable() and iscallable(), so that tables, functions, and userdata with the appropriate metamethods can be interchanged. Right now even if I have __call and __index on a userdata, many libraries won't accept it because they check the type explicitly.

I do something like this in pl.tablex

However, indexable checks aren't exported; is_callable is exported, as well as the inevitable extended type function ;)
