I'd say go for it. Any developers are more than likely to have 10.4 (Tiger) anyhow, and for those who don't, it's quite easy to remove the -lreadline etc. from the Makefile.

Mostly, it is the users that may be lagging in 10.3 (Panther) to avoid the "Apple tax" upgrade fee.

Now, if you want to make readline work on 10.3 as well, here's the code you need. The BSD license is probably the main issue, since it does not allow relicensing as MIT/Lua.

It turns out that Mac OS X 10.4 has readline and so Lua builds just fine with make MYCFLAGS="-DLUA_USE_MACOSX -DLUA_USE_READLINE" MYLIBS="- lreadline"

We don't have access to older versions of Mac OS X. Can anyone check whether this would work in previous versions? Or can we just add LUA_USE_READLINE to
the Mac OS X part of luaconf.h and assume readline is available?
