Multiple return values from the \_\_index meta method
A test with upm found that an
__index method declaring two return arguments is disregarded. They're somehow flattened into the same variable instead, but the normal
x, y = func() syntax doesn't work, and
x is still the same return type. The comparison of a normal function worked as expected with two return values, so this behavior is unique to
__index (and possibly other meta methods).
Fuck knows what Lua actually does in this context, but it does not respond well to
__index returning multiple arguments.
Use a table if you absolutely have to return multiple values from
__index, or use normal functions instead. As already mentioned, normal functions are able to return multiple arguments. It's just
__index that misbehaves.
