At the risk of doing this topic to death…

So now that ipairs() has been reverted to a more 5.2 like behavior, should __ipairs() still be deprecated? When ipairs() was going to just be 1..#t then this metamethod was redundant since the __len metamethod could be used to control the iteration. Now that ipairs() no longer does that, I think the __ipairs() metamethod has some justification to existing again.
