The other issue is that there needs to be a repo for pre-compiled
versions of the most popular packages - I don't know what the
LuaBinaries project feels about that?
Ideally (for Windows) with versions for the major system DLLs: MSVCRT,
the latest VC version and (possibly) cygwin.
Also, removing the need to have VC to just add a library, and at least
making it possible to _easily_ build it with an open source compiler,
would be quite useful.
A website where the user chooses a lib, a Lua version, an OS, a C
runtime (for Windows)... and the module is compiled on the fly (and
cached, of course).
(all the above is easy to say as I'm not offering to do it :-))
