I screwed up. It defaults _ENV to the global environment. Sorry about that.

@Finn: I thought it was always first, but no matter. It's always
"there", even if it is set to nil or a string or a table.

Also, Georgios, the nice thing about _ENV is that it applies to any
chunk, not just a function:

local assert = assert
_ENV = {}
assert(print == nil)

Anyway, I mostly wanted to clear up my error.
