Actually, Roberto gave us hints he understood the situation a while
ago.  What we learned recently is that a concerted effort is being
made to rectify the situation.  I truly believe that Lua without
upvalues, and with scoping rules that give nested functions access to
variables in their enclosing functions, would be a great improvement.
Make no mistake though, I too would also like to see a version of Lua
in which all variables are mutable.
