This is one of those cases where package.path is needed - loadfile()
looks on a filesystem path, but the require() inside test.lua looks on
the Lua module path.

So if you had this line before the dofile():

package.path = [[lib\?.lua;]]..package.path

then things would work, because the _pattern_ lib\?.lua would match
with ? equal to 'def'.
