I suggest to follow Perl's example and allow both VMS-like and
POSIX-like path specifications everywhere. I.e. not just for
require, also in This simplifies porting Lua scripts.
A wrapper around fopen() is the way to go for the Lua core.

Take a look at the path translation routines from the Perl
sources. It's 1000 lines of truly horrific C string processing in
vms/vms.c. Search for "make life easier". :-)
