People would still write

Not if all the examples they saw had the second construction, I suspect.

I like Mark's idea of autoloading modules for the stand-alone interpreter, for what it's worth.

Question: should we start recommending that people use require for standard libraries, too? :

local math = require "math"

I'd personally like to move in that direction...
