Yes, exactly. We also figured Linux distributions are already covered
by including Lua packages directly. It would also be nice to have a
Lua for Mac distribution too, but my Mac background is limited. Andrew

The size of the current Win32 distro is a bit worrying, though. python-2.5.2.msi is 10.8MB, Lua_v5.1.4.18.exe is 12.8MB.

I wonder why there is a desire for this kind of "batteries included"
distribution, in light of LuaRocks.
At my level of Windows knowledge, I appreciate this package. I furthermore
believe this allows exposure to a larger user segment since tools and
utilities written in Lua could be more easily distributed to the many
non-programmers who use Windows. It simply increases the potential audience
of Lua.
