I am using the wrong term. When I say "locals" I mean properties of

some or all of its properties into the environment of a function, I
would just copy the property references from the module to the
environment. They are both just tables, right?
You could do that, but it's not easy to see what advantages that would
give you aside from saving a few keystrokes, I suppose. The package
namespace is in effect the public interface to a package; I wouldn't
have thought that importing random names into it would be a good idea.
