It could be because Lua scripts already have a way to create tables.
If the standard libraries had a table.create function, then what
arguments would it take?
* none? In which case, it gains nothing above the existing ability to
* narray, nhash? In which case, the standard library API implies
things about the underlying implementation details of tables in other
implementations of Lua.
* size? In which case, how would a single size argument translate to
narray and nhash?
