Thank you!

This was the first item in the What's New list for LR 2.0.0, but it
never hurts to restate: :)

* module files are now deployed to standard Lua-style paths:
$PREFIX/lib/lua/5.1 and $PREFIX/share/lua/5.1. This means that vanilla
builds of Lua and LuaRocks are now compatible with each other
out-of-the-box (installing into /usr/local). This means
require("luarocks.require") is no longer necessary to load modules
installed using LuaRocks. Support for multiple repositories and
multiple versions in a repository is still retained (for the latter,
the new require("luarocks.loader") is needed -- luarocks.require works
as a compatibility alias).
