At first I though it was possible to do that in 5.1 too, but, if I
understand properly, the only way to get this behaviour is by making
an __index metamethod for the "loaded" chunck that will fake upval
access at runtime. Too slow for me ATM. I hope we'll get a 5.2work3

What about this?

function lexicalScopePlaceHolder()
    error("I'm not meant to be called")
    return x, y, z
