I guess if you're willing to change your syntax a little, it'll
even be possible to do this all in lua itself yet again.
Something like:

namespace mynamespace

function foo() ... end


Where "namespace" and "endnamespace" are functions that 
perform the swapping and storing of the functions 
and the global environment... I'll look into
this next week at my work if I have the time.
