Nice, I asked because I always read rename as rename(3), not as link(3) .

No, the practice is fine for me. In fact I usually have
shift/unshift/push/pop/splice in my tables ( too much perl in the last
25 years ).

I find insert behaviour in lua confusing, so I sometimes alias it to
push ( when not using may table module ) ( I tend to assume insert is
making room and defaults to start, do not know why, for default at end
I prefer Java name, add ).
