I can certainly respect that way of adding features :]  Just takes time... feels like Lua versioning has picked up, though.  I like 5.2 but I know we'll be helping people who are still using 5.1 for the next half-decade.  Similar to Python 3 not really superseding Python 2 fast enough...  Lua is not Python, but getting things in the core and established for long-term use is difficult if you also must prove they were previously established and used as a third-party module.  Still, I can respect that.  ;]

Yup. I'm contrasting the purpose of feature discussions where things
are a matter of lobbying a collection of people that are developing a
product out in the open and this world. The idea that there is a
"proposal" to debate for consideration, unless someone prematurely
shoots it down before it "advances", has uniquely less meaning here.

Better to implement your own patch, live with it for a while, post it,
refine it, show some benchmarks...

I guess that is important everywhere... Maybe I'm full of crap.

Alright. Back to work.

Liam: You're right. Poor taste. Thank you for pointing it out and it
won't happen again. I could have used "rock and roll" or "football"
and it would have had the same meaning.
