I would ask that you do this, simply because the code is posted on the
wiki, which is a public and informal place. If you are going to license
code on the wiki rather than allowing it into the public domain, it
would be nice to use a standard license to avoid the disagreements and
confusion that are already surfacing in this thread. I think that
explicitly stating "This work is under MIT license, the same license as
Lua" would go a long way toward avoiding the issues.
I only found one other copyright assertion on the entire wiki, by Peter
Prade (http://lua-users.org/wiki/PersistentTables). Personally, I would
rather not see such assertions on the wiki at all. Remember that any
anonymous person can go to the page and change your copyright assertion,
the license, or the code. If you really want to assert copyright or
license on a work, it should be distributed from an immutable source,
such as one's own web site.
