That's why my solution suggested that the environment has a straight
__index=lua_libs, and the actual module is a copy of the environment
(whether constructed implicitly through __newindex or explicitly
through a table copy).

So, yes, there's still a little indirection, but not involving a function call.

It's true that _any_ module gets a fresh environment, although this
might be seen as a feature (strictly reducing use of global namespace)
