Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but is _ENV going to be a
real variable that's accessible from the script, or a hidden
"internal" variable? If it's a real variable, forgive a second stupid
question: why not assign it to _G instead? I'm not trying to
second-guess anyone, I'm just honestly not sure I understand the
current situation.
