Why does it have to be "better?"

I started my driver because I wanted features that one didn't have,
didn't feel like adopting a project that had been abandoned since
2009, and wanted to take the opportunity to learn more about
programming in C.

If you think I'm somehow harming the Lua community by releasing
another Postgres driver, then you can console yourself with the fact
that it has only one follower on Github. :)
