Lets not be too hasty, 5.2.1 is a bug fix release and I feel any such
change like this should really wait for a 5.3 release.
Irrespective of when this could/should be done, do you really want to
have to call a metamethod for this in all instances? I personally
already find 5.2 much slower than 5.1*


* Using tests for OOLua. Luabind, Swig and I suspect LuaBridge, all of
which may need redesigning or optimising specifically for 5.2.
