The problem is that if scripts go inside the versioned LuaRocks dir,
they go away when the user installs a new version and deletes the old
one. For Lua command-line scripts, the scripts dir is designed to
store .bat launchers which set the proper variables to make the
package path work; installing .exes using LuaRocks is really a
stretch, but I see it has its uses -- perhaps a similar approach is
possible for .exes?
