only if the mentioned lua scripts relies on 100% lua

in practice. I frequently lpeg, luasocket, md5/sha1
which are C modules.

Lua on Parrot comes already with several external libraries :
	md5 & sha1
These libraries are written in PIR (Parrot assembler) like the whole of Parrot on Lua. In the case of md5, the C native implementation comes from libcryto (a part of libssl), the wrapper is writting at the Parrot level, so it could be used by any language over Parrot.
