I'm generally a fan of the minimalist style, since I'm a recovering
former magic user.

But James' suggestion is not harmful, and some would like it;  I don't
think he's suggesting that this should be the 5.3 equivalent of

import {
   lpeg = "lpeg",
   path = "pl.path",

That seems pretty clear enough - the only problem I have with it is
that it's a magical environment technique, but that's a personal
preference.  Main thing however is that this all can be done in plain
Lua and therefore becomes a choice.
