This would be very useful in many different ways. It is always hard to know which functions are supported by WoW LUA and which aren't.
For instance i have been trying for some time to get I/O functions to work when i noticed a note on WoWWiki : no os or I/O libraries are present in WoW. Anyways, i think this will be a very useful feature!

Can this somehow be linked with that .NET -> LUA Data Structure class mentioned earlier in one of the video's?

The functions are coming up on IntelliSense but parameters and return values are not there.

Current Intellisense xmldoc files are based on wowprogramming.com (http://www.wowprogramming.com/docs/api_categories). Unfortunately most Lua library functions are missing documentation (i.e. http://www.wowprogramming.com/docs/api/print) and most global functions documented are only aliases for math., string., table. functions.
