I would find it very useful to have these scripts at my disposal, so
if it's not too much trouble packaging them, that'd great.

A problem might be that the comments in the code are in Portugese, but
I hope they are somewhat self-explaining. I still think it's a good
idea to make these scripts official and to include a link on the
website to them. Not only are they good for problem finding, but it
also improves Lua's credibility if there's a good suite of regression
tests available.

I'll see if I can contribute with some additional scripts as well.
