I've always thought it might be nice if the way luarocks operated on
systems with package managers is to use that package manager.  ie, if
you install a rock, this involves converting it to a native package and
installing it.  It doesn't make much sense to me to have multiple
different package managers running at the same time, and it means other
existing software can take advantage of newer Lua modules.
