Actually, Mac OS X 10.4 has libedit (which has a readline emulation
layer). Previous versions of  Mac OS X didn't have it (as far as
remember they had it as a private framework only, not for general
consumption). I've found that libedit causes crashes when used with
the advanced readline patch from the wiki (but that's
not part of lua proper, so it may be ok).
