I think at the very least the syntax should be changed from a : to
another symbol (-> ?) to make the distinction clearer.  Until that
happens, I share your desire to find a way to make the . operator work
as the : does.

Sorry, I'm a bit tired of these kinds of (minor) suggestions.
Designing languages according to the boilerplate of other
languages is certainly no good idea. There are always languages
with other conventions. "->" means in erlang "return" for
instance. May be you are not used to these languages, others
are. If you use Lua, use Lua and become familiar with syntax
and idioms.
