Summary0000966: LuaJITTeX's `loadfile` behaves like 5.1 while `load` behaves like 5.2
DescriptionLuaJIT is fully upwards-compatible with Lua 5.1 and also supports some language and library extensions from Lua 5.2 (see Among them are versions of `load` and `loadfile` with an `env` parameter that allows to set the environment under which the chunk shall be loaded (see the pertinent section of the [Lua 5.2 Reference Manual]( Currently, LuaJITTeX supports 5.2's `load` but its `loadfile` behaves like 5.1. This is incoherent and seems unintended.
Steps To ReproduceRun `luajittex --interaction=nonstopmode -- main.tex`.

Expected output:
load: success
loadfile: success
