Sure. But on the other side if you patch a file it doesn't do any
harm to patch it in a way that works with more then one version.
After all it is quite possible that some of the developers will need
to run tests with older binaries.

I have now added temporarly a test to my version of the file

if tex.luatexversion < 76
 table.insert(package.loaders, kpse_module_loader)
 table.insert(package.searchers, kpse_module_loader)

I will keep this in mind in case I run into some error. Until then I
will left them unchanged.
