The above proposal doesn't really fix things (it does improve things 
somewhat).  I think a full solution should control all global access not 
just creation.

This idea doesn't add anything to the language (it adds to the C code). 
What is the solution that doesn't require changing Lua?  Didn't I go into
the need to optionally enforce some scheme (since anything else is to some
degree like saying, "practice good programming")?  I hope these notes are
actually getting through. 

Does anyone know how to make the list server send emails to the sender?  
I'm not getting copies of my own emails.
