lua-prepend-path allows the administrator to specify a custom Lua library
path to load custom Lua modules that are useful within the context of HAProxy
without polluting the global Lua library folder.

+lua-prepend-path <string> [<type>]
+  Prepends the given string followed by a semicolon to Lua's package.<type>
+  variable.
+  <type> must either be "path" or "cpath". If <type> is not given it defaults
+  to "path".
+
+  Lua's paths are semicolon delimited lists of patterns that specify how the
+  `require` function attempts to find the source file of a library. Question
+  marks (?) within a pattern will be replaced by module name. The path is
+  evaluated left to right. This implies that paths that are prepended later
+  will be checked earlier.
+
+  As an example by specifying the following path:
+
+    lua-prepend-path /usr/share/haproxy-lua/?/init.lua
+    lua-prepend-path /usr/share/haproxy-lua/?.lua
+
+  When `require "example"` is being called Lua will first attempt to load the
+  /usr/share/haproxy-lua/example.lua script, if that does not exist the
+  /usr/share/haproxy-lua/example/init.lua will be attempted and the default
+  paths if that does not exist either.
+
+  See https://www.lua.org/pil/8.1.html for the details within the Lua
+  documentation.

   Master-worker mode. It is equivalent to the command line "-W" argument.
   This mode will launch a "master" which will monitor the "workers". Using
