Since 5.1 modules can expect to be loaded by the require function. And that function do some things that modules relying on 5.1 package model could expect: passing the module name as first parameter and putting the module return value or true in package.loaded[modulename].

I think designing standard libraries just like modules was a good thing. The only thing I don't like about the new package system is that standard libraries, luaL_register and the 'module' function set globals.
