Why shouldn't we want boolean operators in Lua? Who're you to define
whether we need them? Unless you're up their with Babbage or Turing, you
certainly aren't in any position to dictate, which is why they're one of
the features commonly hacked into Lua. Functions just don't cut it when
you need performance.
I'm getting exceedingly sick and tired of the way us users are treated
like children. Just the fact it's so commonly requested ought to be
enough reason for them to be added.
