sorry for the confusion; in context i already put lots of stuff in 
bytecode registers so it's not a technical problem; more a location 
problem (because i want to be compatible) which in the meantime is 
solved by patching the mkiv file-handling lib and package.load cum suis

(the main issue is actually that all the 'normal' lua modules reside in 
the tree and are located by the file locator, while those special libs 
live somewhere else and not per se known to the environment unless 
special env vars are set/known; fyi: i don't use kpse)
