I've been starting to roughly follow this convention as well--i.e.
enumerations/symbols in Lua usually take the form of strings, and such
strings I single quote:

  type(o) == 'table', ast.tag == 'Return', {__mode = 'v'},, 'rb')

Putting symbols under a namespace, e.g., can also be done,
but name restrictions sometimes necessitate the form Type['function']
since Type.function is invalid.
