OK, so I've found that the luarocks executable can be given a
--to=<tree> flag to specify the directory in which it will install the
rocks. However, now that I've read about tags in git and hg, I agree
with you that that is probably a better solution. I'll try to implement
the updater by just cloning the hg repo on google code. I'm kind of busy
with schoolwork right now, so I won't make any guarantees about
deadlines. If you get impatient, feel free to implement it yourself. You
probably know more about mercurial than I do anyway, as I'm a git user.
