Hmmm... right... but... isn't ANSI C and Lua case sensitive to a certain extend?

Plus, the underlying file names will never collide: 'LuaSocket.lua' vs 'LuaSocket.dll'.

The heuristic for require() could be that if you require something starting with an uppercase, then check 'package.path'. Otherwise, try 'package.cpath'.

Wouldn't that work somehow?
