I dont see a use in such encryption in the module loader. If i want your
file decrypted then i would patch the module loader back to my needs ;-)

If you want to use encrypted lua files in your own application (where you
embedded lua as a scripting language) then i would take a look at the
function lua_load, and to lua_Reader, which should be able to to what
you want.

Or i'm misunderstanding something...
