The last time I used Lua on Plan 9 I just compiled it up in the posix
environment (APE, pcc(1) ) and it all just worked. That was 5.0.2.

I would love to see some special Plan 9 libraries though, to have
access to the acme(4) interface and the fabulously sane thread(2)
system.  Something for the long winter months I think.
