But ... if you want to add "../strange;name/*.lua" to the path, you are
already dealing with path delimeter characters and substitution characters
(I assume that "*" means the same as "?", which is the character Lua uses
for module name substitution). If anything, it might be nice to have:
directory = "/",
separator = ";",
substitution = "?",
exec_directory = "!",
ignore = "-"
instead of what we have now. But I digress ...
