It is just an idea.

proposal.1   foreachi()  with more 3 arg.

In my experience, I ended up with creating my own version and not using 
the standard function foreachi(). I am not sure about how foreachi()
is accepted as a standard function in Lua, but 
proposal.1 seems to be a trivial task on src/lbuiltin.c which also keeps 
compatibility. I am sorry, I did not coded yet.

proposal.2   obsolete foreachi(), introduce foreachindex() with +3 arg

if students mixed up foreachi and foreach, they have a nightmare.
So, teachers can take a following strategy, but it is not good.


I follow your naming anyway. But I just wonder, foreachi() is rather 
young and may have a chance to change.
