I disagree. That link takes you to what OSI refers to as the "MIT"
license, not the MIT/*X11* license.

I apologize for my lack of specificity that caused a miscommunication.
Mea culpa. My points were not intended as a criticism of what your

mistaken belief that the Lua license is identical to the MIT/X11
