I am not sure I understand what is it that you dislike. Lua "standard"
does not come with support for sockets. You have to do something to get
that support loaded and available. This can be done with the "require"
business, or you can build your own interpreter and "preinstall"
everything so that scripts can just use it as if someone else had called

Is that enough?
