Was there a reason for the default behavior? Something to do
with default search paths? I don't remember why it would be
different from the Unix default, which has different
directories lib/ and lua/. Besides uniformity, what are the
advantages of the proposed change?

Not polluting the namespace of the "/" directory... :o)

Kepler in fact uses a somewhat different layout, but we would gladly
use this one if Lua did.
