We currently have raw requires, which means we do things like

local a = require"io.github.soniex2.a" local b = require"io.github.soniex2.b" local c = require"io.github.soniex2.b.c" -- use a, b and c normally

Instead of that, is there a module or something that lets me do something like

local soniex2 = reqpath"io.github.soniex2" local a = soniex2("a") -- alternatively, `soniex2.a()` local b = soniex2("b") -- alternatively, `soniex2.b()` local c = soniex2("b.c") -- alternatively, `soniex2.b.c()`, with the call at the -- end for disambiguating between module and path, and -- setting an __index is not an option as the module -- could already have its own __index (or not be a -- table at all; some modules return functions!). -- use a, b and c normally

I think it looks nicer.

Ugh, why did my email client fuck that up so badly :/ Let me re-send...
