No, you can't.  You can only find instances of "function foo()".  You
don't know what globals are available that are also functions.  Trivial

	local flange = function() end
	plinth = flange

Sure, there's an extra layer of fudge you could allow to make this case
work, but the whole scheme will be so delicate the tiniest extra bit
of complexity will break it again.
