I've been playing around with that but no luck yet. 

my first try was

        setfenv(chunk, getfenv(1))

But this fails.  My guess would be that getfenv() would get the
environment for the current function, but the environment does not
contain the local variables of the function itself, only the functions
in, well, it's environment.
