But not a good one! :-)

Actually, I'd hope most modern linux's are starting to get lua
support, its a fairly well-known language, now.

It can be very hard to get packages into distros, particularly getting
newer upstream releases backported to older releases.

I wish more distros pushed their packaging files upstream, but they
actively attempt not to, it seems.
