Ah, I see - the results of lpeg.L are now available in other lpeg
contexts, etc. So alternation becomes '+' and so forth.
It would be nice to be able to say lpeg.L "(foo|bar)", however. '|'
becomes magic of course.
Certainly it would help those (such as myself) who are fluent in Lua
patterns but still struggle to express things in LPeg.
