Hmm... there are two other possible solutions:
a) just define that the iteration variables of the for-loop are
instantiated for each iteration of the loop. That way you always
get the behavior as if a "local k,v = k,v" is present. Or,
b) just keep the %-syntax for upvalues to get the value the names
had at function declaration time.

The upvalues have some nice properties. But if Roberto gets full
featured closures without performance sacrifices I would prefer them.
They are much more powerful.
