In Lua 5.3, this code is unparseable:
function huh() 1 end
Would it be possible in future versions of Lua to instead make it return `1` when called, i.e. to permit a final optional _expression_? AFAIK this wouldn't break anything since the above statement can't be parsed anyways.

Proposed example:
function huh() 1 end
print(huh()) -- prints 1

The motivation for this is lua configuration files.
-- statements...
The desired process is that the above block would be `load`ed and operated on.
As of current the above code block does not parse, and it would be nice if it did.
