May be it could be a solution to enable "syntax options" in Lua by
using some directives at the beginning.

I believe Perl is doing something similar when you write:

use strict;
use warnings;

No real modules are imported but the language is slightly modified and
some constructs are not accepted.

More generally I can agree the the short function syntax may be
undesirable when Lua is used mainly as a procedural language. The
problem is that Lua can be adapted to same domain specific application
that naturally brings to different styles of programming (is this the
multi paradigm stuff?) . In this case it would be nice to dispose of
some options.
