Yes. For instance, first time most people find LuaRocks is as a Debian
package, installed to /usr. One can then do a straight LR install but
it isn't an upgrade - it has gone into /usr/share. I took to applying
butchery to the version in /usr to get the new version working, but
this is not very elegant ;) (There is a proper method which made my
eyes glaze over)
There are certainly advantages to having a local install, with the
tree in ~/.luarocks, with an appropriately modified LUA_(C)PATH.
