IMO, "string.sub(index_from, index_to)" will be more handy if "index_from

("index_to = 0" should mean "index before the first character", as it is
currently implemented in Lua)
Don't you mean to say Lua should add a special-case for -0 and go against
the rule of treating 0 and -0 as equal?
It would have to be -0.0 in Lua 5.3.

Lua 5.3 needs to special-case negation on 0 as well then.
