Great. This should method should get documented somewhere.

You can put require("luarocks.require") inside the script.

This may also answer the previous question: LR can install a package
just as a library or as executable scripts. I believe the rockspec for
markdown assumes you'll only be using it as a library. This is not an
inherent limitation of LR, but of the markdown rockspec. With a proper
rockspec, you should be able to just run it with .../bin/markdown.lua
file.txt - i.e., LR would put the necessary paths inside
