I feel the same kind head-shaking emotion skimming through all this
bickering of doing something well as simple as modules. And yes the
globals issue with old modules is bad. A simple-stupid include is also
not good. I dunno, why can node.js do  it right on modules so simply,
albeit in general Lua would be a much saner language than javascript.
I'm happy that in my Lua project I just don't use any modules or
support them.
