That's a good one ;) 

It's a transitional thing, really. A more pukka way of doing this is to have an explicit pl.compat52 module, but that would be a breaking change.

I do feel however that creating a global setfenv is a mistake since it is often used as a marker for Lua 5.2.  That might break a few things, but the cost is bearable.
