> If you really want to play with this idea, here is a patch for Lua 5.3.5:
This version forces the user to backslash all globals, including the
system libraries, breaking almost all existing programs.
It does not comply with the OP's claim that
"This new feature is optional, so it can not break any of your programs."
However, if the proposal is to be marketed as an optional power patch,
of the existence of which those that do not read the appropriate page on
the Lua Users' Wiki need not even know, there is no possible objection
that can be brought against it.
