	Yes.  But, adding "C:\Program Files\Lua\?\?.lua" (note the two '?')
to your LUA_PATH could provide a simple way to use libraries that load
other internal Lua files.  This way one could install a library like:


	And load it with

require "aTool"

	The file aTool.lua would have to

require "aTool/auxiliar.lua"
require "aTool/another.lua"

	And it will work just with a correct LUA_PATH, despite the folder
where "aTool" subfolder was installed.
