Of course, if you want it to be in an outer scope, you have to
pre-declare in that scope.
Which is a mess, and you'll mix up stuff when to predeclare and when not
to, and might as
well end up always predeclaring, and hey, we're back were we started.
I prefer it the way it is, simply because:
1. It works
2. Don't fix something that works
3. If it doesn't work in a special case, I can easily change it
and what you say about polluting the global namespace, a perfect
solution is to replace
the environment with an empty table - so all global-by-default values
will end up there.
In other words, using the `module' function is acutally an excellent way
to rid the global-by-default issue,
as I see it (which might be wrong for you, because I never really got
what it is you see as "the wrong thing"
actually being wrong).
It's just my 2 cents of support to keeping it as it is, which I'm
assured of it will.
