In case you really miss this, here is how we do it in our game:
-- it joins array t2 to the end of array t1. t1 is altered.
function join_array(t1, t2)
for k, v in t2 do
-- make a new function by delaying the call to the real one with ready
function mk_func(func, ...)
local args = arg
-- So, when you have f(x, y, z), and you can do
g = mk_func(f, x)
-- and later invoked g like this
