I got an idea to take care of remaining 0.001% case.
have require set package.loaded.mod to false before it were fully loaded.
(it were currently set to some userdata anyway)
if package.loaded.mod == false then
-- loading from require, but not yet finish ...
-- standalone program
so, even if lua had mod.lua "require" by default, above
can test for mod.lua running as stand-alone program
