Why privilege the one specific case 'ipairs' does - what about indexing the list in reverse, or between two limits? Pretty soon you are falling back on numeric 'for' anyway because 'ipairs' does not do exactly what you want.

Personally I find myself using ipairs() a lot more often than using for to iterate only part of a table.
