Lua desperately needs a form of optional static typing, not those gotos with ugly syntax.

Since I used Lua for the first time, (~ 7 years ago,) my "would be nice if" list includes a "freezeType(val)" function that would constrain future assignments to val to its current type. Of course, if the type is table, that is a very weak limitation.

[ What about a freezeValue() ? ]

I never needed such things. I'm talking about tables with fixed fields, that is: objects, modules, _G etc. Basically, to catch any misspelled globals or table fields.
