No need to change the language.  Formulate conventions for the
directory structure of the library containing the modules, write a
program (by all means call it `setup.lua`) that generates a module
loader for each subtree, and the difference will be as insignificant
as this:


import library.module as mylib


mylib = (require "library").module
