Not sure if I'll ever finish it, but I think it's along the same lines.

I understand busy.  I've got 75 projects on github and I've lost count how many are still active.

If someone got time to invest, I'd really like to see an event based
(web)server like node.js, ruby event machine, twisted or tornade done
in Lua. You could start by translating the node.js basic interface and
enhance with cooperative multitasking. Anything CGI just isn't the
state-of-the-art anymore..I'd do it myself, if I wouldn't have 3
FreeSoftware Projects already. Then make a wiki for that

With Lsyncd I basically did make an event based daemon, but pretty
tailored to its usecase, filesystem monitoring and multiple child
process/signal handling. But experimentally I added non-blocking TCP
so e.g. two nodes who otherwise cannot directly communicate with each
other can exchange events over an IRC channel.
