And I think that is a good thing.  If kern.module.autoload is used to
prevent module autoloading, then lua(4) must not be a way to circumvent

For clarification:  The kern.lua.autoload sysctl merely controls whether
lua(4) *tries* to autload a module when it encounters the "require"
statement.  If it is set to false, it will not try it.
