I would vote in favor of $, or other prefix. For one, this would allow

I thought Lua was meant to be about providing mechanisms, not dictating
By all means, prepend a $ to your new tokens, but don't force it on
other people who don't want it. Personally, I was hoping it might be
possible to use the token filter to add functionality/remove brokenness
from the Lua interpreter that usually has to be done with C hacking.
Having a flag bearer walk slowly in front of every custom token would
definitely eliminate that ability.
