Attaching a common prefix, sys., to completely unrelated things is an
unusual approach to make code more readable.

And how would it avoid ambiguous re-declaration of sys?

While the lua list is fairly polyglot, emulating python irritations in
lua isn't going to go far
on this list... anybody who likes python knows where to find it, don't they?

Think, if a new python programmer named a function open, confused
himself, and posted to the python mailing list suggesting that it not
be global, how far do you think they'd get?
