- Subject: Differences between Lua-Sqlite3 and LuaSQLite

I've been using Lua-Sqlite3 (http://luaforge.net/projects/lua-sqlite3/)
for a year or so now, but while poking around on LuaForge, I discovered
a SQLite 3 implementation of LuaSQLite
(http://luaforge.net/projects/luasqlite/). Some of the differences
between the two that I immediately notice are:
* Lua-SQLite has been updated more recently than Lua-Sqlite3.
* Lua-Sqlite3 does not work with Lua 5.1, but I have a patch to make it
build and load successfully.
* Lua-Sqlite3 has a more convenient (IMHO) interface where I can write
things like stmt:bind(valueA, valueB):exec(). The equivalent in
Lua-SQLite is 3 statements: stmt:bind_values(valueA, valueB);
* Lua-Sqlite3 has a nice User's Guide style manual but no Reference
Manual. Lua-SQLite has a nice Reference Manual but no simple to read
Can the authors tell me what makes one better than the other? Does
Lua-SQLite support more SQLite 3 features, because it is newer?
