Instead of adding functionality to 'loadfile', another way could
be to extend 'load' further to accept an opened file as argument,
i.e. the following would be equivalent:

     loadfile "xxx"
     load( "xxx")

What is the main argument against this?

Try this:

Just to be sure: is load(io.lines "xxx") equivalent to loadfile "xxx" right now? (Both 5.1.4 and 5.2?)

Or is loadfile somewhat optimized for the task it does?
