Alright, that's clear enough.  Honestly, I had thought the 5.3 upgrade provided this
behavior.  I've been using [this library](; since LuaJIT is 
my daily driver, I had never had occasion to test this premise. 

Granted, it might be a good addition to the Lua standard library.  If you happen to need it,
well, you can have it right now.
