My findbin and lib [1,2] modules (based on analogous modules from
Perl) had that in mind:

  -- /qux/bar/baz.lua
  print(require 'findbin'.bin) --> prints directory of script (/qux/bar)
  require 'lib' (require 'findbin' '/../lib')
     -- adds a path relative to the directory of the current script to the
     -- package search paths (package.path & package.cpath).
  require 'foo'  -- loads from new search paths (/qux/lib/foo.lua)
