I concede that the HAProxy documentation should mention `package.path`
to be clear what kind of path it refers to. But I disagree that we
should explain how this works in detail, because this is not about any
HAProxy specific stuff, but about the "inner workings" of Lua and thus
it's best explained by the Lua documentation. We would only be able to
"re-explain" the existing documentation, but probably worse, because we
miss out on important details.
