Philippe, LEL actually can handle any layout since you can nest LEL expressions recursively.  You can define multiple row/column layouts, expansion criteria, and even repetition.  It's basically a regex for layout.

I'm in the process of cleaning up the code, stripping down the build, and then I'll have it moved someplace so people can get in and help with a Lua binding.  I'll let everyone know when it's up.
