i've heard this (or similar) before; but still i haven't managed to do
a 'clean' install of anything that's LuaRocks dependent.

by clean i mean without _any_ LUA_PATH messing, dropping the packages
where i could find it with plain Lua.

for me, some help in the install process is a slight positive; but
even the slightest modification of runtime is a big deterrent.

can LuaRocks do such a clean install?  if so, how?
