i think that the "core" is loaded from the socket.lua, and not vice
versa. so "core" doesn't know anything about Lua modules. the aim of a
"core" is to provide the basic OS interface, so all the other things can
be built in Lua with this interface. at least LuaSocket 2 works this

so you should load socket.lua (and maybe other things like url.lua,
ftp.lua, ltn12.lua, etc) manually.
