Welcome to the wonderful world of the Lua mailing list. If you want to
do something with Lua that is one iota off the received wisdom, prepare
for a rough ride. There have been many similar instances of this
behaviour during the last years and you're not the first to experience
this. You won't be the last either.

If I were you, I would do my thing and not care too much about the
negativity produced by some people on this list. This list can be a
stimulating source for many things but it can also be incredibly
