The actual scripts can be glued together - for Windows exes they can
saved as a resource, rather than the generic srlua approach. One would
write a custom loader that would lead to require() ending up loading a
script from those resources. But some components will have to be DLLs
and a reasonably intelligent installer can handle that issue.

There's a similar issue with packaging LuaJava applications, and
generally any JVM program that depends on JNI and needs to load
external libraries.
