Although not ready for production, David Manura's LuaInspect has a
SciTE plugin.

It provides detailed semantic highlighting (locals vs globals, unknown
globals, etc) from both dynamic and static code analysis.

Still not perfect for editing because the code rescan (which uses the
Metalua compiler) has not been fully optimized yet.
