This is correct. Only the primitive
Since the GetPlayer objects define a __tostring metamethod, you can convert the
userdata to string for use as a table key.
The __equals metamethod wouldn't be useful for tables. Lua would need a __hash
metamethod that returns a value suitable as a table key. But I wonder what
strange things could happen if A==B is not the same as hash(A)==hash(B)?
And anyway you can roll your own table with meta-keys.
-- exercise for the reader: memoize keys for the lifetime of the object
local mt = getmetatable(o)
if mt and mt.__hash then
__index = function(t,o)
__newindex = function(t,o,v)
getmetatable(t).__proxy[objecthash(o)] = v
