Which ones? I made this comment a few months back and was rebutted.

The only one that is a deal breaker for me is _ENV.

It's too elegant and simple to not use, and falling back to setfenv is not acceptable, given the that contrast.

Also, the FFI is really nice. I prefer the stack. There is a clearer line between the coupling and there are fewer performance caveats of which you need to be aware.
