Those things are covered by the LuaForge2 and Lua Cookbook efforts
(which don't really exist yet).  They are also covered by the wiki
(which exists today): under "Networking
Generic / Low-level"

except that the wiki content could be improved.  Improving it requires
people who will study the various alternatives in detail and to write

over prose (as on the wiki).
