That's a liitle extreme.

The API and VM instructions, like print(), invoke__tostring() automatically.
I can live with that (in fact, I want access to it). I also like the
automatic call
in the %s specifier to string.format(). There must be one such format
specifier, it may as well be %s.

But apart from those, yes.
