When I'm interactively poking server Lua from the chat line as a sort of REPL, the minimum invocation to print most values is


It would be nice to have something more convenient.

print() is currently no good because it outputs to stdout. This happens to work if you're on the server console, but not if you're a client with 'hack' access using the chatline.

It might be nice to just print the values of expressions, although this doesn't seem to be a standard part of the lua(1) REPL.

(In fact, now I check, the client Lua console has the same problems. print() goes to the client's stdout.)
