Isn't require supposed to set package.loaded[modname] to some true
value *before* it executes the module chunk to prevent a possibility
of an infinite recursion? If it is not the case and require can cause
an infinite recursion then it is a bug in Lua module system.
Requiring modules can produce cycles (directly or indirectly) and a
package loader should be prepared to handle this possibility.
