I'm upset to find that adding 'continue' is not even being considered.
(Just to let you know that there still are ones that miss it).

We are also considering the following changes:

- string.pack/string.unpack (along the lines of struct/lpack)

- Mike Pall's implementation for yield (using longjmp), allowing yields
in several places not allowed currently (inside pcall, metamethods, etc.)

- some form of bit operations. (We are not very happy with any
known implementation. Maybe just incorporate bitlib?)

- there is already a new function luaL_tolstring (along the lines of
the 'tostring' function). Maybe we should define a lua_rawtostring (no
coercions from numbers) and then use luaL_tolstring ("full" coercion
from other types) when we want to allow coercions. The point is where
to use one and where to use the other. (The current lua_tostring behavior
would be deprecated in the future...)
