What about "capture"? After all you are capturing the globals as locals, no?

While the above syntax is not available, wouldn't it be possible to use something like

capture {"assert", "ipairs", "type"}

in Lua 5.x and make capture() define the names using setfenv?

One could also create a global table with the names to be captured, or maybe a call to capture without parameters would capture just those names...

If that works, one could write something like

module("m", capture(baseNames))


module("m", capture)

But then maybe just making a function package.seebase could solve it... :o)
