I, for one, think that sub-modules could be a great approach for
libraries, as long as people don't mind number-of-files bloat. There
are at least a few libraries out there that are into thousands of
lines and could probably benefit from sub-modules for better
organization/clarity. On a different tack, this could be a handy
approach for separating the front-end from the back-end - the
functions and such that make up the intended interface of the library
could be kept in the top-level, while back-end helper functions could
be moved into one or more sub-modules, which would make the library as
a whole easier to use.

That said, I'm fairly new to Lua and NSE, so I may be completely off :)
