Ah! By the way, I had problem with Alien since it requires luarocks for

You are not alone. For example, when I have to manage Lua tools for multiple projects that require different versions, and make them available to other people (not necessarily programmers) via SVN, things can get pretty hairy when installers are involved, so I try to avoid them.
