I suspect it would silence the warning for Lua 5.3, but create warnings for
lower versions of Lua (which would have nothing defined for table.unpack).

I’m not so much concerned with the one warning as I am the general question
of how other people do this require. The idea of _G.unpack makes good sense
to me, and it also silences the warning.

Thanks all, Peter
