Very well put.

I'll confess to being an apostate from Python myself, but this is not
really a Python thing. Even C89 has constant arrays (ie tuples) and
structures (ie aggregate constants).

The main reason why aggregate constants would be nice to have in
Lua is that more lurking bugs can be caught at compile time.
