a global function is just an anonymous function stored as a named field in the 
environment variable, usually _G

therefore:

funcXY()

is the same as:

_G["funcXY"] ()

in fact, i guess both compile to the same bytecode. (maybe using a constant 
reference for the environment, instead of _G)

so, even if you have reloaded some code, executing the first form should fetch 
the 'new' global function from the environment
