Yeah, quite a few people seem to prefer some sort of booklet format. I
will in the end prepare two versions: the old-style 4-pager and an
8-page luxury edition. However, I'd give that another couple of weeks,
until I've collected and included some more feedback.

The fact is that everybody has his or her own "pet libraries", so for
the time being I'll just concentrate on documented core functionality.
(If I were to use socket calls myself day in, day out, I'd be tempted to
include them. So let's turn the tables: there's always the DIY option...
and once you've got something, I will gladly include it!)
Having said that, Enrico has done another draft, a Short Reference about
the Lua <--> C API. I might, at some point, try to rework that as well.
After that, we'll see: I love refcards, but only up to a point:-)
