Since the issue of licensing has raised I'd just like to check that the Lua
license is compatible with the LGPL license. I think VisLua will be LGPL
providing the other contributors agree and it is compatible.

I get the impression that noone knows whether they a really compatible! :-)
However, as long as Lua's license is not breached, broadly speaking: you give
the authors credit, leave existing copyright and license notices, and say if
you modified anything, everything is okay.
Lua license:

Are there any licenses (ie. other than LGPL) that the authors prefer?

John Belmonte has already delved into the problem a little on the wiki:
