I doubt they will ever update the version of Lua (5.1.x) that is embedded into WoW. The changes from 5.1 to 5.2 with function environments will probably break too many things that were written with that in mind.

You should be able to write your own table class with its own iterators, though they will never be seamlessly dropped in place of normal tables.
