What kind of require() interception does require so much code ? Can you
give us an example of 'interceptor' code you would like to be able to
write in an hypothetically ideal module system ?

You can find an example of a module loader that reimplements the normal
Lua modules loader in pure Lua on the wiki [1]. It's just 22 lines long
(is that a lot ?). Rewriting require in pure Lua to better suit your
needs wouldn't be more complicated.
