Under the risk of sounding stupid, just a curiosity: is there any reason I should not be able to access the function arguments when I access the function environment via getfenv() ?
My guess would be that this is some colateral effect of the paremeters being local.
I have no doubt that the argument variables should be local - so they won't collide with global environment. But when I am accessing my caller's environment from another function, the lack of access to his arguments looks kinda strange to me.
function service(arg1, arg2)
x = 1
y = 2
local z = 3
env = getfenv(2)
local z = env.x + env.y -- that´s kind of useful
-- although env.z is not available (ok)
-- env.arg1 and env.arg2 might also be useful here
