I haven't found a quick fix neither.

Both ways would solve the problem in principle.
What I have is the module name "oberdiek.bar.hello"
The dots are replaced by the dirctory separator and
the file name extension is appended:
file = "oberdiek/bar/hello.lua"
or with splitting the subdir part:
subdir = "oberdiek/bar"
file = "hello.lua"
Assuming "/" as directory separator can be used for
*all* supported operating systems. Otherwise I would
just have to know the correct separator string.
The file is installed somewhere under:
TDS:scripts/ <zero or more dirs inbetween> /oberdiek/bar/hello.lua
Thus I want to search for
