I think load() should, in addition to _ENV, also take a list of upvalues,
which are only used when loading bytecode.

When loading bytecode _ENV is assumed to be the first upvalue, upvalue 0, so
we just need to make it varargs for the other upvalues.

This reduces the need for debug.upvaluejoin() (or w/e, setupvalue?) when
loading bytecode.
This is obviously a good suggestion. How easy would it be
to make a wrapper that would achieve it in presently-available
Lua? I have no time now, but if when I look at this list at 18:00
UTC, nobody has contributed it yet, I'm willing to have a go. (slightly broken on the checkstack stuff)
