There's not much difference between the require functions in Lua and Node.
The search paths work differently.
Node has a magic "exports" object whereas Lua lets the programmer choose
the name of the exported table which must be explicitly returned.
Node and Lua-5.1 suppress recursive requires. Lua-5.2 does not.
The differences in scoping seem to have more to do with differences
