Yes, it's a pity...

A 'small hamming distance' is a nice way to say 'typo'.

Lua programs are still very sensitive to spelling mistakes.  In
theory, Lua could be patched so that _no global_ accesses are allowed,
except for some way to get 'imports' in.  Then spelling mistakes will
be genuine compile errors.
