Just a clarification: by "as well" I meant that IMO none of the two
projects should be called "CGILua" anymore (the original CGILua,
because it has long outgrown CGI -- I remember discussions about this
back when I was in Rio working with the Kepler Project but no one
could settle on a new name, and the current name already had a good
deal of mindshare; and the new "CGI.Lua", because of the impending
confusion with the well-established CGILua).

AFAIK the history is that it started by working via CGI but the
project evolved over time to work over many different interfaces and
the name just stuck.
