Agree 100.001%. It may sound ludicrous, but this library mess was the
first (and actually most problematic) stumbling point when I tried to
get Lua up and running on my Windows box. Simplest solution was to
abandon all binaries and make my own exes and dlls, but many people are
not willing or able to do that.

Plus every second day or so a bot should post a message with either
"RTFM" or "UTSL" or "!" in the subject line...

Who needs a bot?! We have our very own lhf;-)
