Does LuaRocks still pass the wrong parameters to the compiler and thus
fail to build half the packages correctly if you're on something other
than 32 bit x86?  That was a serious bugbear for me, and one of the
reasons I just gave up with it.

What I would find *very* useful is a tool to convert rocks into Debian
packages.  I really don't like having multiple package managers running
on the same system at the same time :)
