I beg to differ. Most of my mistakes involving globals is due to
mistyping a variable and happily using it (which then equals nil).
Integrating the wonderful metalua-based lua-inspect tool into my text
editor has done wonders to deal with this (thank you Fabien and
David!). Now those undeclared globals show up in bright yellow with a
red background, which makes them really hard to miss. :)
