That was probably me.  When I wrote that I didn't miss anything specific,
instead I was going on the size of POSIX vs. the size of lua+lposix.  But
it isn't hard to find something missing after following the reference in
the README, e.g., setsid().  And again, everything I've ever wanted is in
lposix already.

Moving on, when will the new tarball be available?  Just (~ 9:00pm EST)
downloaded lposix.tar.gz again (9437 bytes, same as my old tarball), cmp 
says they're equal, and it bombs on line 48 of test.lua (putenv) as it
did before.  <shrug>  I'll try again tomorrow.

Keep up the good work,
