Excellent move! I also went through a necessary stage of being strict with Penlight, since it was spilling over and whacking standard namespaces. There's still the lazy-load option for convenience and experimentation. There is _one_ case (I believe) where it still whacks _G otherwise: setfenv gets redefined in Lua 5.2 to mean something functional - I still feel a little bad about this.
