I liked the idea of table.pack but am baffled by what it does. I had
assumed we would be able to "reset" the array portion of a table to
some new list. (Effectively, have Lua reset the array portion to the
number of args and set each index just like we do in the table
constructor.) This table.pack does not seem at all useful. :(
