I only wish there was easier way to do that in lua/luajit, a pattern along the line of "local something = something" to be just "import something" or "use something" or something like it.
It's 'import pairs, ipairs from _G' in Moonscript (which sometimes seems like a catalog of would-be features discussed on lua-l)
OK, not difficult to write a macro to do this, but that feels over-the-top. Otherwise it really does need to be a core change because it generates local slots which can only be assigned at compile-time.
