let's hope that all this dies soon; but i'll add my 2cents to the noise:

what about:

- code is in MIT (it's most used license in the Lua community)

- articles (and whole book) is in CC-BY.

easy enough? (no new licenses)

complete enough? nobody wants to see the book copied without
attribution, but nobody wan't to add 10-20 different credits to a
program that uses well-known idioms.
