A related point - when Lua is built as a DLL, I'd prefer to see the ?
in LUA_PATH and LUA_CPATH refer to the directory containing the Lua
DLL, rather than that of the main EXE. That would allow me to package
my Lua DLL and external modules once, and then use it from a number of
apps located in different directories, without needing to have
multiple copies.

Again, this is really for core Lua, not for any particular
distribution to address.

If it would help, I could attempt to provide a patch for this.
