I agree.

Once the user installs the LuaSocket module, fetching other
(all-lua) modules and their dependancies could be done quite
pleasantly in a variety of ways from within Lua itself... which
is nice.

We developed a year ago an deployment system based on LuaSocket. After running a little piece of Lua code, the rest of the system (modules, dll's, etc) is kept up to date automagically. This project proved me that Lua is a good choice to distributed applications with centralized deployment and maintenance. But the idea can be also applied to installation of modules instead of deployment, as AK and you suggest.
