--- Entrypoint templating wrapper for Scribunto packages.
--  The module generates an entrypoint function that can execute Scribunto
--  package calls in the template context. This allows a package to support
--  both direct and template invocations.
--  
--  @script             entrypoint
--  @release            stable
--  @author             [[User:8nml|8nml]]
--  @param              {table} package Scribunto package.
--  @error[85]          {string} 'you must specify a function to call'
--  @error[91]          {string} 'the function you specified did not exist'
--  @error[opt,95]      {string} '$2 is not a function'
--  @return             {function} Template entrypoint - @{main}.
--  @note               Parent frames are not available in Entrypoint's
--                      `frame`. This is because recursive (grandparent)
--                      frame access is impossible in legacy Scribunto
--                      due to [[mw:Manual:Parser#Empty-argument expansion
--                      cache|empty-argument expansion cache]] limitations.
--  @note               As Entrypoint enables template access rather than
--                      a new extension hook, it does not work with named
--                      numeric parameters such as `1=` or `2=`. This may
--                      result in unexpected behaviour such as Entrypoint
--                      and module errors.

--- Stateless, sequential Lua iterator.
--  @function           inext
--  @param              {table} t Invariant state to loop over.
--  @param              {number} i Control variable (current index).
--  @return[opt]        {number} Next index.
--  @return[opt]        {number|string|table|boolean} Next value.
--  @see                [[github:lua/lua/blob/v5.1.1/lbaselib.c#L247]]

--- Check for MediaWiki version 1.25.
--  The concurrent Scribunto release adds a type check for package functions.
--  @variable           {boolean} func_check
--  @see                [[mw:MediaWiki 1.24/wmf7#Scribunto]]

--- MediaWiki error message getter.
--  Mimics Scribunto error formatting for script errors. 
--  @function           msg
--  @param              {string} key MediaWiki i18n message key.
--  @param[opt]         {string} fn_name Name of package function.
--  @return             {string} Formatted lowercase message.
--  @local
