On second thought, rather than argue about this, how about we set up a
section on the wiki at for binary modules?  I.e. make a
page with links to luselib-enabled versions of the lua.c interpreter,
and provide a place to upload binary modules.  I have a Lua SDL
binding ready to go, and I think it would be a nice alternative outlet
for the database bindings, socket libraries, and XML projects that
have been talked about on the list.  This way, we can gauge the level
of interest in such a feature before hassling the Lua authors with yet
another feature request.
