I used to think like that, but I've found with the years that //1 is
much more cumbersome to read. And code is ~ WORM.

Currently I try to avoid operators where there are non obvious
interpretations, but YMMV.

It does not, but lack of typing makes it much easier for me to use
another language. In general I do not use lua as a general purpose
language, I just use it when embedding. Bear in mind I've been
programming for more than 40 years and have where to choose.
