OK, I'm trying to understand the application here; it is a copy, not a
proxy (i.e. the modifications apply to the original object)? I suppose
an object is identical when it behaves exactly like the original, but
then a low-level function like table.concat() cannot be expected to
work, unless it's a true copy.
