Lua table limits (creating)

Ranier Vilela-2

What is the limit for the number of tables?

If we can preallocate a new table with createtable,
we are limited by "int", unnecessarily.

lua_createtable uses luaH_resize, that accepts unsigned int.
LUAI_FUNC void luaH_resize (lua_State *L, Table *t, unsigned int nasize,
                                                    unsigned int nhsize);

Why can we not create a table with size_t?
