With regards to my original question, is there a way to get the

Sure. See the debug. library.
I don't find this to be at all bloated, and find it vastly more useful
than all of lua's IDEs combined. Maybe I've been weaned on using
debuggers over the years, but having breakpoints with variables really
does make my life easier. I actually talked a bit with the LuaEclipse
guys, and they are certainly thinking about something like this, but
like so many other things, it's "in the works."
I'm not sure what you mean by "breakpoints with variables". ldb lets
you look at all the visible variables at the current execution point
the show command), or to evaluate an expression using the visible
variables. It does not yet have watchpoints, but I'm planning on adding
them; all the infrastructure is there to do it.
ldb is not a visual debugger, of course, but I'm trying to make it
modular enough that it could be managed from an IDE.
If there are specific features you feel it lacks, please let me
