Maybe a new lib, 'array', that not only adds the 'new' construct but
also wraps up a given Lua tables with other array features via metatable
(fixed length with nils being the common issue that crops up here)

It could be done by a third party (although an official part of the Lua
distribution would help stop the eternal moaning :) )
