The reason we never wrote this documentation is that we planned to
change the name of package.loaders. We have a problem that "loader"
means two different things: a function to load a module, and a function
to searh for loaders. The first use is somewhat fixed by lua_load, and
the second by package.loaders.

But it seems now is too late for that...
