There's no difference.  The local-statement introduces a new local as does
the for-statement or the new definition of the function-statement.  It only
tries to give a more sensible semantic to the "syntactic sugar" of the
function-statement (that it introduces a new local).

I thought about that too.  But I prefer the local to be implicit.  You don't
want to write "for local i=1,100 do..." either ;-)
