While I admire people who are so disciplined that they
write everything in a file and run standalone Lua on it from
their sophisticated editor that does just that with one mouse
click, I personally like interactive mode.

And when code has been written in that ataxophobic
style where nothing is ever global, I can't just cut-and-paste
it to my terminal without running into annoying messages
about nil functions that I'm trying to call.
