For those of us familiar with python-virtualenv and wanting similar
behaviour in the Lua world, I've written a simple shellscript to
basically emulate this behaviour. As Leaf mentions, Lua/LuaRocks
support this isolation behaviour out of the box, so it's a fairly
simple set of steps to automate this.
It's a bit of a hack (my shellscripting is fairly pitiful) but it may
be of utility to some.
