Ok, I missed luactl(8) part I guess. I don't know your usecase but this
remote orchestration of kernel Lua state from userspace sounds a bit
dodgy to me.
Since you support 'luactl require' you can use it to load base libraries.
There is no need for a boolean flag if you already have a more generic
mechanism in place.
