We don't control the DNS for lua-users.org, and its maintainer insists
on having it without the www. as the canonical location. This means it
can't be set to a CNAME, it must be an A record. This in turn means
when Pepperfish make changes like this, the records related to
lua-users.org must be manually updated by their maintainer, rather than
automagically updated by us. This after all is why prefixes like www.
were invented :)
