If you're going to be toying with the table library, how about allowing 
table.insert and table.remove to work with multiple values.

    table.insert(list, value)
    table.insert(list, pos, value, ...)
    table.remove(list, firstpos [, lastpos])

Although remove could perhaps be overloaded to remove all items in a table:

    table.remove(list, "*all")

It's probably more clear to have a distinct table.clear function.
