i've tried that a few times, but what i get is a non-standard tree and
a preloader.  it was a few months ago, so i don't remember the
details; but could that be because

- how luarocks itself was installed / configured?

- how it was invoked?

- something about the specific packages i was installing?

also, how can i tell luarocks that i already have something installed,
not from a rock but as a standard module?

maybe just a rockspec->english (or bash, or whatever) translator would
be better for old stubborn guys like me....
