Passing variables to Lua script

Any idea how pass an argument to the Lua script from an external source? It's possible to pass script arguments by starting the normal Lua interpreter with additional items through the CLI, but that doesn't seem to work with MySQL Proxy. I also don't think there's a way to create a generic environment variable through the configuration file and I don't want to rewrite the Lua script as I'm running it.

The only option I can think of is to create a new module that I can rewrite at will that only contains the variable and load that into the Lua script, but that doesn't seem efficient or safe either.
