Yes, the Lua license explicitly says so: the "Software" means "this
software and associated documentation files". So you can distribute
the reference manual freely.

But you cannot distribute PiL. The web site says so:
        "This online book is for personal use only. It cannot be copied to
        other web sites or further distributed in any form."

    Thanks!!! great to know. That seems much more logical :)
