  You know what really cheeses me about Lua?  This:

	x = x + 1

  WHAT IS THAT?  THAT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE!  x isn't equal to x + 1---it
doesn't make mathematical sense!  In what way can x be equal to one more
than itself?


  Can we please change this to some other symbol?  One that does NOT mean
"equality" or "equals" or "equivalence"?  

  Oh, I know:

	LET x BECOME x + 1

  There!  That's better!
