This is the kind of use that deserves the use of the debug library,
because you explicitly want to break the usual visibility rules.

Note that, for this particular use, you do not need the entire
apparatus of Rhozenko's code. (In particular, you do not need the part
you had not understood.)  A simpler 'setfenv' will do:

-- not tested!
setfenv = function(f, t)
  for up = 1, math.huge do
    local name = debug.getupvalue(f, up)
    if name == '_ENV' then
      debug.setupvalue(f, up, t)
    elseif name == nil then
