a similar and common use case is appending an element to an array: it's also
painful to write:
complexLValue[#complexLValue + 1] = newElement;
One can circumvent this by having a append function:
but this makes the assignment not as visible as the first approach does.
A solution for current official lua with explicit assignment:
local list = complexLValue; list[#list + 1] = newElement;
Can this be rewritten using the imaginary @ operator?
complexLValue[#@ + 1] = newElement;
Now the @ would be on the left side of the assignment, this looks weird.
