Presumably just so that it becomes more reasonable to rely on it being
available, at least in "normal" Lua installations.  Lpeg is really nice
for small tasks as well as big ones, but people would often choose to
use something like the builtin Lua pattern matcher stuff instead of lpeg
(despite the latter being far nicer to use), because they're guaranteed
to be available.
