Why do we not have an __unindex metamethod, that gets called when a
key gets set to nil (either by GC or manually (including rawset))?
If you need control over set and get events for a table, use a proxy table.

In any case, rawset is for *raw* access, so no metamethods are called.

We have __gc already, I don't think anyone would mind another "special" metamethod. (__unindex would be kinda like __gc but for table keys)
