It seems like we ought to be able to implement a safeguard against
global misuse by doing something like:
function setglobal(i, v) print("no such local variable: '"..i.."'") end
and then explicitly calling:
globals().globalvarname = value
when we want to set a global. This doesn't seem to work though.
Also, using a settable tag on the globals table doesn't work:
local gtag = newtag()
settagmethod( gtag, "settable", function(t, i, v) print("no such
local: '"..i.."'") end)
Is there no way to override the setting of globals?
(Sorry if this has already been mentioned)
