Making something work in lua with file:read  and the "*n" option is very

Sorry. Yes. Also, a follow up thought:

If lines was deprecated, an option *could* be to add another modifier to read. Something like "read until a specified string of symbols or end of file." 

This may not be a perfect suggestion but perhaps it's along the lines of a better idea?
