Inclusion by "popular request" is not the same as inclusion by "me
too" count threshold.

I believe that providing good arguments for your position has much
better potential.

However, I'm starting to speak for the Lua Team. Sorry, I shouldn't.

I believe that Lua Team position on "popular requests" and new
language features was stated many times on this list and elsewhere. It
is very conservative, and that is good.
