Yes, the structure of local repositories are unfortunately not
compatible. One way to perform the conversion is to run "luarocks
pack" using LuaRocks 0.x/1.x on all installed packages (this will
create binary packages), erase the repository, and then run "luarocks
install" with LuaRocks 2 to install all packages to the new locations.

(This reminds me that someone once asked me to add an option to
"luarocks list" to make its output more script friendly.....)
