I'm with you on that;  there are remarkably few gotchas in Lua.  A
well-written library will know that people will make a dot/colon
confusion and will be able to issue a 'bad self' message - maybe even
say 'you forgot the colon!'

As I mentioned, people trying to enforce a dot-only style will have to
go to the trouble of making all included libraries work in a dot-only
