Sure it would.  Maybe you (etc) have a different opinion, but I think
I've done enough Lua programming to have a pretty good feel for what
works, and I'd _love_ error-by-default.

Neither global-by-default nor local-by-default is a very good choice
for any but the most trivial programs, and most of the stuff I write
in Lua either tends to be over that threshold, or is essentially all
top-level assignments, with few functions.
