BTW great to see the default package paths updated!
Though I still think that the `!\?.dll` and `.\?.dll` c-paths should be removed, because they make it too easy for the casual user to put dll's into the system path (where other executables are also looking and might load them accidentally, as is the nature of Windows)
5.3 work3 package.cpath;
The regular path has the `lua` subdirectory of the executable directory; `!\lua\?.lua`. Can't a similar subdirectory for clibs be added? So the dll's stay out of the system path, while the interpreter itself is in the system path.
Obviously anyone could override it at any time, but imo at least the defaults should be as safe as possible.
