Im curious, if there was a "batteries included" version of Lua, which packages and libraries would it have?

Which packages should everyone know about?

Well rather than specific packages, I'll provide my two cents
about technologies that I tend to end up using on a regular

* Networking
** Client/Server socket support
** Protocol support (HTTP,FTP,IMAP,...)

* Standard file format read/write
** CSV

* Filesystem support
** Simplified directory traversal
** Archive file support (tar, zip, gz etc)

Other things I used relatively infrequently, but these are the
items I need on a pretty regular basis.
