Who did?  Odd advice.  We are not developing MikTeX.  I can tell you
all about script wrapping in TeX Live, but not in MikTeX.  This is not
something standardized, like TDS.

I just tried, it doesn't seem to work even for perl / batch scripts.
Maybe I remember it wrong.

Anyway, on MikTeX 2.9 the following batch works (should be a single
line in case it gets broken):

  @for /f "delims=" %%I in ('kpsewhich --format=texmfscripts
%~n0.lua') do texlua %%I %*

(If you save it as foo.bat, it will search and launch foo.lua script.)
