Lua is great on almost every point, except the scoping rules. Why can't we
have normal scoping rules (i.e a variable is local unless defined
globally?).  Though I read the rationale behind that decision somewhere, I
wasn't exactly statisfied by it. 
Is there any who likes these scoping rules?

Are there any plans on changing this?
