I don't think so ...
You can also do :
local _G = _G
and use _G.mytoplevelfunction(args) instead of mytoplevelfunction(args)

Another solution is to do :
module("mymod", package.seeall)
It will set the __index metafield of the package table to _G ... so
mymod.print will be the same as _G.print. You'll be able to use all
global variables in your module ...
