This would be a complete backwards-compatibility break with little gain.  If you want it, add 1 to your index or subtract 1 from Lua's index.

If I'm understanding the manual correctly, lua_tolstring() doesn't
honour __tostring. Similarly lua_tonumberx() doesn't call __tonumber
(if such a metamethod even exists?). The manual also doesn't appear to
specify whether lua_call() will look at __call.

I was also wishing there was lua_geti() and lua_seti(), but it looks
like those did get added at some point. :-) (or were they there all
along and I'm just blind?)
