I think I was one of the group asking for os.exit() to accept a
boolean in 5.2 so it feels like it changed a lot to me (hah).  I
frequently wrapped that, along with table.concat() to do a tostring()
on its elements.  5.2 brought many welcome changes -- I still wish you
could associate userdata-to-userdata with set/getuservalue(), though

Coroutines isn't my name, no.  I was going by Sir Pogsalot
( and I also go by Sleepy_Coder on #lua on
Freenode. :>  Frequently making an embarrassing spectacle of myself,
sometimes I have a good problem to ask lua-l though. :-)  Why?
