lua_getglobal/setglobal are standard Lua API documented in Lua
reference manual.
I am reluctant to redefine them in my code.
But I would like to see this change in the next Lua release. After
all, globals come from function environments (i.e. LUA_ENVIRONINDEX).
I think that current definitions of lua_getglobal/setglobal are
artifacts of Lua 5.0 and are not consistent with Lua 5.1.
