If you're the one implementing the sandbox, then make available to the
sandbox your own implementation of loadfile which allows for custom
environments. My personal solution is the loadfile_envcall function
defined in
which is a Lua 5.1 and 5.2 compatible function which acts like
loadfile, but the returned function takes it's environment as the
first parameter. You could easily modify this to have a separate
function for setting the environment on the result of a loadfile
rather than giving the environment every time.
