You missed the anchor at the start of that regex, and yes values need
another find/replace which altogether should take about 5 minutes and
result in a module that works in lua 5.1, 5.2 and luajit.

Not to mention it's being deprecated not purged instantly from the
earth, you don't have to go fix everything straight away. Funnily
enough however if you were to change the semantics of module, you
probably would.

It's Not That Difficult.
