Sure, actually, I hesitated a lot before posting this, but I though it
wouldn't hurt.

The aim is not to replace anything, just to make what is usually
considered a best practice (using locals as much as possible) easier
to do thanks to the default syntax.

However, I don't have any strong feeling about this. I think I'll end
up writing my own thing based on the Lua VM, and won't bother the list
with these suggestions.

If it annoyed you (and others), I apologize.
