This declaration succeeds, but unfortunately when calling the
function 'name' refers to the current contents of the name variable,
not the contents at declaration.  Is there some way to force this
to be expanded, or the reference frozen, at declaration time ?

function declare(name)
  local func = dostring("return function() return [[""!]] end")
  setglobal(name, func)
