My guess would be that TeX systems should live in their own world and not be system dependent. But that's just a wild guess.

Put the modules in a texmf tree. But then you won't be happy because loading Lua modules is a game of luck with LuaTeX (on OS X at least). Unless you edit the build script and compile LuaTeX yourself. 

(Sorry to keep on about this - it's really a pity that this is the case with LuaTeX and I have no idea how to help here.)
