Heh, well put!  It would be nice if dofile() was allowed to pass arguments to the main chunk. E.g. we have 'dofile.lua' which is just:

print (...)

dofile() won't pass any arguments  - but it's easy to write a dofile which does take arguments:

> c = loadfile 'dofile.lua'
> c('one',1,20)
one     1       20

BTW, there is a little diffference between require() on 5.1 and 5.2:

> require 'dofile'
dofile  .\dofile.lua

That is, also passes the filename as well as the module name.
