Prosody [1], a XMPP server written in Lua sounds like a good match for
"real-world" program. It's open source and publicly accessible. In
addition to that there exist benchmark tools for testing XMPP servers
for performance.
I'm 100% sure the authors would be interested in helping further
improving Lua's performance in reagard to its GC.
