Hello Justin,
I have almost finished the project that binds Lua to Xapian.  The project is on github as the following:

If you have time, you could check it out and test it. The lua/docs dir has some examples and a documentation file (index.html). There is also smoketest.lua in the lua dir, which you could use "make check" to test the basic function.

I think there maybe three areas that this project need improve:
1. error handling
2. improve configure file that make it support different version of OS well
3. make the API feel like native Lua code

As I am not an expert on the above three area, so any suggestion on that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

 Other people who is interested could also give me some suggestion about the project. Thanks.
