It turned out to be not that simple as I want to be able to use the
same table to pass to setfenv(func, env) as an environment, so I need
those variables to be stored by name.
I ended up changing the way I process them and going from large IDs to
1 to make sure that I only update the innermost local variables and
ignore all others with the same name.
