I agree with Patrick here. However I'd go a little further and vote for no 'table.pack' at all. I agree it is useful in some cases and people write something like that often (as does 'string.split', 'table.append', 'table.copy', ...). But I don't believe there is one-version-fits-all to make it into a standard library. Furthermore, the asymmetry with 'table.unpack' [1] and bringing back the 'n' field policy does not look like the best choice either. Personally, I'd rather see 'apairs' [2] becoming standard.

with you and Patrick!  And also regarding the standardization of 'bit' :-)
