I can't get `for x=r(1, 10), r(10, 10), r(1, 10) do print(x) end` to work.
Me too.
It errors that they aren't numbers. Ofc they aren't Lua numbers, they're custom

It saddens me that Lua doesn't support custom numbers as well as other languages
(namely Python). :(
Because it's numeric "for".

There is generic "for" for iterating other things.

Also, rationals are still numbers. They're just not "Lua numbers" (objects with type(x) == "number"). Any language with operator overloading (e.g. C++) lets me have numeric for with rationals. Except Lua. (Python doesn't have numeric for at all so it doesn't count.)
