Your implementation does it pretty much as how I would expect it to handle package.path, and as how I will implement it, but I can't reconcile it with what it says in the documentation (both 5.1 and 5.2):

"The path used by require to search for a Lua loader."

I read it as the path to search for the loader not the file. This could be just me interpreting it incorrectly.
