I don't feel the approach of Lua behind most of the libraries. Keep it
simple but at the same time powerfull and very flexible. I prefer a
nearly perfect code structure - well named variables...

I did it because I need the uploading of file_s_ for my web app. I spent
weeks to reach my intentions: Keep it simple but at the same time
powerfull and very flexible.
Sorry that my answer is so general. I don't have the time now to go more
in details. But the plan is to open all the Lua sources (Lua Library) I
wrote. I must do documentation to show the simple concepts and to get
more acceptance from others.
