I'd like to use LuaSocket in my application, as it seems to be the de facto standard way of doing networking from Lua.

Sure, but if you want something different you can check curl bindings
for lua5. They are part of FreePOPs and are pretty maintained, and you
can ask me for updates.

here the API are REALLY stable.

Woo... nice.
From just a brief look, though, curl doesn't seem to
have a low-level socket interface (such as luasocket offers),
just an http/ftp/etc interface.  Is that right?

LuaSocket also has some attraction for being pretty small
and mostly written in Lua itself (very maintainable/deployable).

Very interesting, however... will look deeper this week.
